The FAFSA—or, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid—will help us determine which loan, grant, student employment and other types of aid are right for you.
Understanding Tuition and Fees
Calculating your out-of-pocket expenses is simple. Using our published tuition and fees and subtracting all scholarships, grants and loans will help you understand your out-of-pocket costs. This information will all be laid out on your personal financial aid award letter, and we’ll be ready to help walk you through it.
