Note about the cost of attendance on financial aid awards for continuing students: The amount of room and board your financial aid covers as part of the total cost of attendance has not changed. In the past we've always presented the room and board charges as equal to first year room and meal plan charges. We are now required by the federal government to show the average cost based on the options you can choose from on campus. Your costs that will be billed are based on your room and meal plan choice and may differ from what you see on your award letter.


Student Loan Cancellation: With regard to President Biden’s August 24th, 2022 announcement concerning student loan cancellation, borrowers may access their student aid history, including loan balances and Pell Grant recipient status, by logging in to their federal student aid account at Borrowers who want to be notified when the application is open can sign up for notifications at the ED subscription page.


Please note: the 2023-2024 priority deadline for continuing student applications has been extended to May 31, 2023.
