Paying for College

Don’t let the price of college stop you from planning to go. It’s an investment that will open doors for you throughout your life.

Your college costs will be much lower with financial aid – money that helps you pay for college. Nearly everyone who attends college gets it. Financial aid can be grants, scholarships, work-study programs and loans.

Grants, scholarships and institutional aid are FREE money. This means you don’t have to pay it back.

There are also low-interest federal loans, but you must pay these back with interest.
