Please note that we have concluded our financial aid application review process for Academic Year 2023-2024 Online Programs (Courses with start dates July 1, 2023-June 30, 2024). If interested in applying for financial aid, please select an online course in our 2024-25 Academic Year (courses with start dates July 1, 2024 or later).  Funding for our 2024-25 Online Programs is limited, as such early applications are encouraged.

We have also concluded our financial aid application review process for 2024 On-Campus Programs. We encourage those who may need assistance in the future to apply for aid as early as possible.
