Financial Aid and Planning

2 types of financial assistance (grants and loans) are offered to online students through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In many cases, qualified students receive a financial aid package which may include both types of financial aid. Students are reminded to file for financial aid each year as soon as possible after October 1 to gain access to the maximum amount of financial aid. 

Financial planners are available to assist students with the FAFSA process, which determines eligibility for federal need-based aid. Financial planners also advise students on options to pay for educational expenses after financial aid, including term/semester payment plans, monthly payment plans and additional loan options.

For assistance in selecting payment options or making financial arrangements to meet educational expenses, contact Online Student Services by email.
