Financial Aid

Most financial aid is awarded on the basis of financial need. Need is the difference between your cost of education (educational expenses such as tuition, fees, room, board, books, supplies, etc.) and the amount you and your family contribute toward your education. You may be eligible for financial assistance and not realize it.


  • Financial Aid information is available to all students. Students who are interested in applying for Federal Student Aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at https://studentaid.gov/.

    The earlier you apply the better, as all students must meet with the Financial Aid Specialist before receiving any financial aid.  The calculated FAFSA application should be available within five business days for your school to review if you electronically file your application.  
    After you receive an email back from the Federal Government stating your FAFSA application has been processed, please call 941-255-7500 Ext 1729 to schedule an appointment to meet with the Financial Aid Specialist.
