You've made the decision to go back to school. Now the big question... 'How do I pay for it?'
The Financial Aid office will meet with you to discuss the various methods of payment for tuition. This may include how to apply for Title IV Federal Financial Aid. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to establish eligibility for federal financial aid. Funding may include Pell Grants, subsidized and unsubsidized federal student loans.
In regard to changes to Your Family’s Financial Situation, if you or your family’s financial situation has changed significantly from what is reflected on your federal income tax return (for example, if you’ve lost a job or otherwise experienced a drop in income), you may be eligible to have your financial aid adjusted. Complete the FAFSA questions as instructed on the application (including the transfer of tax return and income information), submit your FAFSA form, then contact the school to discuss how your current financial situation has changed. Note that the school’s decision is final and cannot be appealed to the U.S. Department of Education.
