If you have not begun the financial aid application process, you can get started by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (for federal and most state aid) online. Enter our school code, 001170, on your application and we will receive your data electronically. You should also complete the CSS Profile (for institutional need based aid) using CSS ID 4054. Once we have determined your financial aid eligibility, we will notify you with your financial aid award.
