Urgent Financial Support for Students

Office of Financial Aid


The Office of Financial Aid awards funds—scholarships, loans and work-study—based on a student’s calculated need. For students who have special circumstances arise during the year, the Financial Aid team will work with them on an individual basis and help with funds, as needed.

Students are required to take their loans first and also show they are willing to work before additional funds can be awarded. Depending on the situation, the college can award additional scholarship money to help students get through the year—for example, in cases where a student is short on funds and the family cannot offer any more help.
