Financial Aid
The first step to applying for financial aid is to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To learn more about the FAFSA, you can go to their website at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. This is the federal form that all students must file in order to be considered for financial aid programs. There is no fee to apply for federal student aid.

Some adult students may also qualify to receive a Pell Grant (a grant that is an award that does not have to be repaid).


Any adult scholar student enrolled in more than 11 credit hours will be charged the regular undergraduate fee. Adult students are required to take six (6) credits a semester to qualify for financial aid and/or a Pell Grant.
