Student Financial Aid

As you've no doubt learned, a college education is more expensive than ever. College tuition is rising much faster than average incomes, so college education is becoming more unaffordable with each passing year.

The good news is, there are numerous sources of student financial aid to help you afford college. Like most students, you need help paying for your tuition and other educational expenses. So take a moment now and learn your student financial aid options to help pay your tuition, earn your degree, and advance into your career successfully.

The best sources of student financial aid include:

  • Student Loans
  • Grants
  • Scholarships

Students Loans

Students loans are a primary source of student financial aid. Student loans are offered by the federal government and financial institutions and can be used to pay for your tuition and other educational expenses. Student loans, like all loans, need to be repaid once you've completed your college education.

Scholarships

Scholarships are a source of student financial aid which are available to students based upon academic performance, financial need, gender, minority status, areas of study, and more. Scholarships can be used for tuition and other educational expenses and do not need to be repaid after graduation.

Grants

Grants are a source of student financial aid provided by private institutions and state and federal governments. Grants can significantly reduce your tuition and other educational expenses. Like scholarships, grants do not have to be repaid after graduating college.
