Financial Aid

Applying for Aid

Complete the FAFSA form to be considered for financial aid. The majority of our students receive some form of financial assistance and even if you think you won't qualify, submitting the FAFSA may make you eligible for an award from Dean's institutional funds. The 2023-2024 FAFSA form is now open.


Whether you need a hand with the FASFA, or have questions about your financial aid package or out of pocket costs, we're here to help! Schedule an appointment with a student financial planning counselor today.
