Applying for Financial Aid

Two questions most families ask are how much is it going to cost and how can we afford it?  Many families rely on assistance through the many Federal and State Student Financial Aid programs to help them pay for their student’s education. To apply for financial aid, start with the Federal Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA.
