Scholarships

Scholarships are awards that do not have to be repaid, and you can have more than one at a time. Typically, scholarships are awarded to students who meet special qualifications as outlined by the university, a selection committee and/or a donor.

Grants

Grants are awarded based on need, and do not have to be repaid. Federal, state and institutional grants are available.

Employment

Employment is a popular option for many college students. Federal and state work-study jobs are awarded to students with documented financial need. On-campus employment options are also available for students who are not eligible for work-study.

Loans

Loans are borrowed money that must be repaid with interest. Two types of loans are available – federal and private.

  • Federal Loans: These loans allow students and their parents to borrow money to help pay for college through loan programs supported by the federal government. They have low interest rates and offer flexible repayment terms, benefits and options.
  • Private Loans: These are non-federal loans issued by a lender, such as a bank or credit union. Private student loans often have variable interest rates, usually require a credit check and do not provide the same benefits as federal student loans.
