Financial aid may come from sources such as the government (state and federal), the college you attend, and private organizations. Monies may be in the form of grants, scholarships, work-study, or loans. Financial aid is meant for use at 2 and 4 year colleges, trade or career schools, and graduate school. Accessing financial aid often requires applications submitted by deadline. Students and families are asked to participate in workshops and presentations that are offered. Please see the College and Career Center tab for events available for students and families in coming months.
