Most financial aid falls into two main categories:

Scholarships

Scholarships are given in recognition of what you've accomplished through academic study, talent, service projects, and future goals.

Grants

Grants are a type of gift aid typically awarded based on your financial need.

Loans

Student loan programs let you borrow money to help pay for your education. Repayment of most educational loans begins after you graduate. Because loans must be repaid, you should plan your borrowing carefully..

Student Employment / Work-Study

The Federal Work Study program gives you the opportunity to work part-time while going to school.
