Scholarships + Financial Aid
We give over $1.5 million to students in scholarships each year. These institutionally funded need and/or merit-based awards are given to students based on the results of the audition, application and FAFSA. Click here to find out how to apply for scholarships and other financial aid opportunities.
Financial aid is assistance provided to the student and the family to help pay for the student’s education. Major forms of financial aid include gift aid (grants and scholarships) and self-help aid (loans and work). In order to be considered for financial aid, you must first complete the FAFSA. You can find out more about the financial aid process by clicking the link below.
The U.S. Department of Education randomly selects students whose information needs to be validated. The federal government mandates that colleges verify approximately 30% of the student aid applications submitted each year. The verification worksheet you are required to complete is based on your dependency status and the verification tracking group indicated on your student aid report. You are only required to complete one verification worksheet. Please refer to your student aid report to determine which worksheet you are required to complete. If you need help or clarification determining your verification tracking group or dependency status, please contact the financial aid office at your respective campus.
