Get Help Paying for College

As you prepare for college, you’ll want to investigate all the options you have for financial aid. Most students qualify for some type of aid. We’ll walk you through what kind of funding is available and help you figure out what you may be eligible to receive. Scholarships, grants, and loans are just some of the financial aid options available if you qualify.

Where to Look for Student Financial Aid
Do you know where to find all your financial aid options? These funding resources may help make college more affordable:
  • Federal: When you complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) you can find out what federal grants and loans you qualify for. If you’ve served in the military, you could get additional benefits.
  • State: States also use your FAFSA information to decide if you’re eligible for state-funding grants or scholarships, which include need-based assistance. We’ll help you see if you could qualify for aid in your state.
  • Institutional: We offer scholarships1 and affordable tuition payment plans. You’re investing your trust in us, so we invest in you.
  • Private: Companies large and small offer different types of aid for college students, including loans and scholarships. We’ll help you explore these options.
