This award is determined upon completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. Amounts vary based on financial need. This grant is calculated as part of the total financial aid package of a student. If a student receives other substantial awards from the college or other sources, need-based grants may be adjusted; these are re-evaluated at the start of each academic year according to the most recent FAFSA results.
College-Funded Need-Based Work-Study
Our college-funded work-study awards are distributed to applicants based on demonstrated financial need: returning sophomores – seniors may apply. Priority is given to those students who demonstrate financial need by submitting a complete Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). There are placement opportunities in various departments. This program is reviewed each semester to ensure that students complete their total number of assigned hours. Failure to complete their hours could result in the grant being revoked and students being billed for uncompleted hours.
