Why Should I Apply for Financial Aid?

All students are encouraged to apply regardless of income level. Need-based aid isn’t the only financial aid available. If your family’s income is too high, you may not qualify for certain aid programs — namely, federal grants. But if you want to be considered for other aid, including work-study programs and federal student loans, you still need to fill out your financial aid application.
