Applying for Financial Aid
Students are eligible to receive aid (scholarships, loans, VA benefits, etc.) up to their established cost-of-attendance budget. (A student’s cost-of-attendance budget includes tuition and fees plus a reasonable amount for room and board, books/supplies, and miscellaneous expenses for the academic year). The maximum amount allocated for room and board, books/supplies, and miscellaneous expenses in 2018-19 is $23,946.
