• Financial Aid and Scholarship Information

    There are two types of financial aid a student may receive:  merit-based scholarships (based on GPA, test scores, or involvement in an activity) or need-based aid. This page is dedicated to need based aid.

    •  All students who seek financial aid will need to fill out a FAFSA form.


    The FAFSA website is www.fafsa.ed.gov.  A family may submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 of the applicant's senior year. Here is the address to the FAFSA web worksheet that you can fill out beforehand to speed the process along:  www.fafsa.ed.gov

    Some private colleges/universities will also require another form called the CSS Profile Form.www.profileonline.collegeboard.com
