The primary responsibility for financing education lies with the student. Federal financial aid is available for those who qualify for most degree programs. Due to the increasing cost of higher education, it is difficult to meet the total financial need of students. Therefore, students are encouraged to seek sources of aid available to them through community resources.

Most financial aid is based on financial need. Financial need is based on formulas established by federal and state governments. The formula is based on income, assets, family size, and other measures of financial strength. Financial need is defined as the cost of education less the expected family contribution.
