FAFSA & Scholarships

Paying for College

Regardless of your ability to pay for college,we encourage all students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The FAFSA helps colleges determine what your family's contribution will be towards the cost of college, the amount and types of aid a student will receive, and qualify students for scholarships (both need based and academic based scholarships). We are here to help students and their families complete the FAFSA and apply to scholarships as part of the college planning process.
