Direct Subsidized Loans are loans made to eligible undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need to help cover the costs of higher education at a college or career school.

Unsubsidized

Direct Unsubsidized Loans are loans made to eligible undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, but in this case, the student does not have to demonstrate financial need to be eligible for the loan.

PLUS loans

Direct PLUS Loans are loans made to graduate or professional students and parents of dependent undergraduate students to help pay for education expenses not covered by other financial aid.

Scholarships

Scholarship funds are typically made payable through check and written in care of the student or the student and the College.

Federal Pell Grants usually are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or a professional degree. A Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is a grant for undergraduate student with exceptional financial need.
