Financial Aid Information

Financial Aid is limited, based upon need, not merit, and is available to both in-state and out-of-state students. All financial aid applications and documentation must be received by the ADVANCE office on or before the financial aid application deadline. All financial aid applications per deadline date will be reviewed at one time to determine which students have the most need. The parent or guardian of the financial aid applicant will be notified of the amount of financial aid awarded, if any, by phone and/or email within three business days of the financial aid application deadline.
