Types of Aid

Financial aid is any form of assistance used to pay for college. There are three types of aid:

·         Grants and scholarships – Also known as gift aid, these do not have to be repaid.

·         Loans – Most federal education loans have low fixed interest rates determined by the federal government. Generally, no payments are required until after the student leaves school or graduates. Banks and lending institutions also provide low-interest loans for college.

·         Work Study – On-campus employment for students to earn money for books, supplies and personal expenses.
