Financing Your College Education

SCHOLARSHIPS, GRANTS, AND WORK STUDY

We'll help you find a way to pay for college! Financial aid is about discovering options that work for your family's situation. Together, our financial aid office will work with you to find the right combination.

Perhaps it's a scholarship or grant based on your stellar grades in high school. That lead role or first chair might just pay off with a fine arts scholarship. Keeping up your performance on the playing field and in the classroom may reap dividends for you with an athletic scholarship. There are also scholarships and grants based on demonstrated financial need, of course.

The highlights are below. Click here for the complete list.
