What is Financial AidFinancial Aid is any source of funds available to help students absorb the costs of a higher education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. If you feel that you will need assistance, you are encouraged to apply for a PIN, and then complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Your FAFSA application must be renewed annually.
If you feel that you will need to apply for loans, please visit the U. S. Department of Education's Direct Loan website for further information. You must already have your PIN to access the Direct Loan features of the site. You should complete the Master Promissory Note (MPN), and Entrance Counseling Session prior to scheduling an appointment with the Financial Aid Office. Once completed, your MPN and entrance counseling are valid for ten (10) years.
