The purpose of financial aid is to supplement the amount you and your family contribute. There are three types of financial aid.

1. Grants-Aid that does not have to be repaid. Grants are awarded based on need.

2Work Study-A federal program that allows you to work on or off campus. This type does not need to be repaid because you are exchanging work for financial aid.

3. Loans-Money borrowed from an institution or the federal government. These educational loans must be repaid with interest.
