Financial Aid & Scholarships

Financial Aid

Students who are veterans and are eligible to receive veterans' education benefits such as the Montgomery GI Bill may also apply for federal financial aid by completing the FAFSA. Financial aid eligibility for veterans is determined by the same federal process applied to all students and is eligible for the same awards as all students.
