Get the Financial Support You Need
We strive to make our financial aid application as streamlined as possible. If you run into difficulty, you can call our office and speak to a financial aid officer in order to make sure your application process runs smoothly.
You will be asked to provide information about your family income and assets, outside awards, and unusual or changed financial circumstances. Once we have reviewed your information and determined your demonstrated need, you will be notified of your award for the coming year.
Both current and prospective students have access to financial aid officers year-round by email, phone or in person. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

You can always apply for financial aid. If you applied for aid in the previous academic year, we will automatically email you instructions for reapplying for the following year. You will need to update your information to reapply.
