Eligibility for Aid

Financial aid eligibility is determined using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form (FAFSA). To see eligibility view, How to Apply for Aid. FAFSA applications are available on both campuses of the University, in local secondary schools and on the Internet at  

In completing this form, the students are expected to provide information on their own income and assets, family income and assets, and un-taxable income (Workers' Compensation, disability, etc.) The need analysis formula used in analysing the information on the financial aid application measures the ability (not the willingness) of students and their families to contribute toward educational costs. 


Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy 

Federal regulations require that all schools participating in any Federal Financial Aid program adhere to a financial aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy. 

Financial aid does not cover costs associated with the following: Admission applications, enrollment deposits, and/or transcripts. The financial assistance offered may not always meet the student's total financial need. It is the student's and family's responsibility to pay the difference between the student's cost of education and available financial aid. The Financial Aid Office seeks to meet the educational cost of students, to the extent possible, depending upon available funding.
