Financial Aid/Assistance


There are services available to help you pay for your education. Call the Financial Aid Office at the school where you would like to attend and ask about the different types of aid that may be available. If you are in an employment program, ask them for help with finding money to help pay for your education.

There is money offered through the federal government, state government and schools which may be available to you to help you pay for your education. If you are looking for help to pay for school, you should complete and submit a FAFSA – Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
