    • Evaluate the family's financial ability to pay for educational costs;
    • Distribute limited resources in an equitable manner; and
    • Provide a balance of gift aid and self-help aid.

    A wide variety of financial aid programs from scholarships, grants, employment, and loans are available to help students with educational costs. Most awards are based on financial need while some are awarded in recognition of merit or achievement. Financial Aid is awarded based on full-time enrollment status (12 hours). Financial Aid packages for students enrolled less than full-time may requirement adjustments. Eligibility for awards varies with enrollment status.
