We offer a number of scholarships to students who demonstrate a strong ability to succeed through their academic achievements, community leadership, and service.



The federal government funds Federal Work-Study Employment. It gives eligible students the chance to work on or off campus and earn money. This money is an alternative to taking on loan debt. They do this instead of taking on loan debt.

Private Loans
