We are here to make it as affordable as we can for you and your family.

大学很贵. 我们理解. But study after study proves education is one of the best investments you’ll ever make. The goal of our Financial 援助 Office is to help bridge the gap between your family contribution and the full cost of your education, 包括 tuition and fees, room and board and books.

As a new applicant—whether you are a first-year or a transfer student—your first task is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student 援助 (FAFSA). Once your application has been filed, you will be considered automatically for all available federal and state aid as well as merit- and need-based scholarships that 资本 offers. The earlier you file, the greater opportunity you will have to qualify for all available aid. For that reason, we recommend filing as soon as the application opens, which is expected to be in December. Consult our financial aid timeline to determine application and decision dates or email a financial aid specialist to find out how we can help you and your family.
