Financial Assistance for Students

 Tuition is due in full by the add/drop date. We understand that everyone’s situation is unique; please make an appointment with our biller to work out a plan specific to your financial needs.

  • To set up a payment plan, you must book a meeting with Rachel Taylor, student billing specialist, by clicking this link. Rachel will be able to discuss your financial options and work with you to formulate a plan for payment.
  • We also are strongly urging all our students to file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). You can do this entirely online, and it is free to complete it at www.fafsa.ed.gov. You could be missing out on thousands of dollars in federal and state loans and grants: the only way to find out is to file the FAFSA. If you need any assistance with the FAFSA, please email [email protected]
  • 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 you plan to attend 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.
