Basic Financial Aid Requirements

Need vs. Merit

Eligibility for need-based assistance is determined by the Federal Methodology formula:

Budget – Family Contribution (student + parent) = Eligibility for Assistance.

Need-based aid includes grants, some scholarships, and some loans.

The Admissions Committee assesses merit-based aid, and this is awarded based on a student’s outstanding achievements and potential. Roughly one-third of entering students receive some type of scholarship support.
