Financial Aid and Student Accounts

Financial Aid Policies and Procedures

College policies and procedures regarding financial assistance can be found on the Afford page.

Degree Pursuant Coursework 

Only coursework required for a student’s completion of their active degree program is included in determining their course load for federal and state financial aid and their cost of attendance for all financial aid. Taking coursework that is not required for degree completion may result in a recalculation of a student’s aid package and financial aid may be reduced or eliminated. If a student has questions on whether a course is required for their degree program, they should contact their Academic Advisor or the Office of the Registrar.  

Assistance Available from Federal, State, Local and Institutional Programs

Information regarding assistance available from federal, state, local and institutional programs can be found in the College Catalog.
