Types of Aid
A grant is a form of financial aid that does not need to be repaid. Apply for each year by completing the FAFSA. If you are eligible for grant aid, your package may include a combination of Federal, State and Institutional grants.
A loan is a form of financial aid that must be repaid, with interest. It's important to consider repayment when applying for loans. (View our borrowing tips.)
