What Is Financial Aid?

College financial aid helps students and their families by covering higher education expenses such as tuition and fees, room and board, books and other coursework supplies, and transportation.

How Does Financial Aid Work?

Different types of aid are provided through various sources, such as federal and state agencies, colleges, high schools, foundations and corporations. The amount of aid a student receives depends on federal, state and institutional guidelines.

Students have the choice to accept or reject the aid offered. The type of aid determines whether it will have to be repaid.
