Apply for Financial Aid

Our office stands ready to help students develop a financial plan that meets their educational goals. We are a borrower based school, which means that if you remain eligible, you may borrow federal aid for every term you are here.

We process loans two terms/eight months at a time. You will then receive a new set of loans for the 3rd and 4th term, and it will continue to cycle every two terms/eight months.

The maximum Federal Stafford Loan amount in a two-term loan period is $20,500 as long as your budget allows for the eligibility.
