Our Philosophy

We understand that the cost of college is an important part of the decision-making process. No two families are alike, and financial circumstances can vary widely. If you’re unsure whether your family qualifies, advisers in the Office of Financial Aid are ready to assist at any time during the application process.

To apply, you’ll need to complete the College Scholarship Service Profile (CSS Profile) and Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as well as submit tax returns for you and your parents. It’s important to submit all your documents by the stated deadlines, so that we’ll have the information needed to review your family’s financial picture and provide the best financial aid package we can for you.
