Finding Additional Financial Aid

Most federal student loans, grants and scholarships are applied directly to the student’s account to pay tuition, housing, and other college-related costs. Any excess funds may be transferred electronically to the student’s account or sent to you by a paper check.

You need to contact your schools financial aid office to review procedures used to transfer funds to the student’s account.

Work-related programs will be paid on an hourly basis.
