Types of Financial Aid
Financial Aid is the resources provided to a student to meet his or her college expenses.
Financial aid funds may come from federal, state, institutional and private sources. There are two basic types of financial aid: gift funds (money that does not need to be repaid) and self-help funds (money that is borrowed and must be repaid, or earned while enrolled).
Financial Aid Eligibility
Many factors affect financial aid eligibility, including estimated costs, expected family contribution, financial need, and the conditions under which aid is offered.
