The Counseling department wants to help ensure the success of our students after their time at our institution. This web-page was designed to provide direct links to information regarding the types of Financial Aid available for students pursuing post-secondary education.
Please feel free to reach out to our Counseling Staff with any questions.
All Financial aid from the federal government will be awarded through the Free Application For Student Aid (FAFSA)
Go to FAFSA.GOV to fill out the FAFSA if you have not done so yet.
FAFSA Opens: October 1st
FAFSA Deadline: March 1st
Most colleges will offer incoming freshmen a renewable (meaning you can use it for 4 years) scholarship based on their SAT score and GPA. Information about these scholarships can be found on the Financial Aid page of the university.
Colleges also offer other scholarships through the numerous departments at the university/college. These scholarships are often called Endowed Scholarships. Check for scholarships offered by the college you plan to attend.
Scholarships can also come from any organization that wants to offer one. Ask any organization/group/union you belong to if they have any scholarship opportunities!
Be careful when using search engines for scholarships. You should never have to pay for a scholarship. Do not put your information into any site that seems untrustworthy.
