Getting a college education is a big financial commitment. But it might cost less than you think.
Our financial aid counselors can help you find ways to pay for college and apply for aid. Many types of financial aid are offered, including federal, state and private. Federal financial aid can only be used for courses taken in your chosen program of study. Learn more about the Course Program of Study (CPoS) requirement.
