Financial Aid

We realize that the price tag of education can be a little overwhelming. We also know that a professional degree is a worthwhile investment for your future. The advising team is available to answer general questions about financial aid, but we recommend students also speak with their Financial Aid Counselor. You can find your Financial Aid Counselor here.

We also recommend all students complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Through FAFSA, a student can receive grants, loans, and work study. Completing the FAFSA also ensures a student receives the best loans for their unique situation. You can visit FAFSA to get started.
