Financial Aid:

Financial aid packages for students often include a combination of loans, grants, scholarships, and work-study designed to meet students' needs. To qualify for aid, students must apply annually and meet the eligibility requirements.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form is required for federal loans and scholarships, and the earlier you can submit it, the better loans you might receive. The priority deadline for this form is March 1.

Although your admission will not be guaranteed at this point, completing this form now means that your financial aid will not be delayed.


Through the generous gifts of alumni, friends, and professional associations, the School provides additional financial aid to its full-time students who are in need of support. Students apply for these awards, and awards are given to those students who can document unmet financial need through the student financial aid process.
