Tuition & Financial Aid: The system has been straight forward and very easy to apply and navigate through. I would suggest to any new student is to review the application deadlines and to be patient when hearing back about awards.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I get a pell grant which pays for my tuition and books so that's a big help

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I don't want to say it is bad but I haven't received much help from the financial aid office. I really don't understand the system well enough and in spite of good grades, I can't qualify for any kind of assistance. I don't want to take out private loans because of the high interest rates but I don't feel the FA office is particularly helpful.

When it comes to financial aid, students offer mixed reviews on the subject. Some say that the financial aid process runs smoothly and that the staff members are very helpful, while others cite that staff members only see students as dollar signs and numbers, and not as actual human beings. The best advice, though, is to apply for financial aid as soon as possible. It seems that the staff isn't always available, so you may need to make appointments to see them. The reason for this is that the number of students that come to the office is huge compared to the number of staff members.

One thing to remember is to give the staff time in order to do right and fit everyone in. You just can’t come in at the last minute and expect the staff to help you out right away. In order for financial aid to work with you, you have to be patient and work with them.
