There are many different programs available to assist families in meeting the cost of higher education. Although every family’s financial aid package will be different, each consists of a combination of grants, loans and/or work study.
Basic responsibility for financing higher education rests with students and their families; financial aid is offered to supplement the family's maximum financial effort.
