All prospective, admitted, and returning degree-seeking U.S.and international students are invited to apply. Please note that while prospective students may apply, you must be admitted before we will review your application. Please see the full eligibility requirements here.

Need-based grants are up to $5,000. They are awarded in addition to any merit scholarships you may receive, and do not need to be repaid.

How do I pay my bill online?

Billing notifications will be sent electronically each semester. The Fall semester payment due date is August 29, 2011 and the Spring semester due date is January 30, 2012.

Am I eligible for U.S. federal financial aid?

You're eligible for U.S. federal financial aid if you are:

  • A US citizen, permanent resident, or eligible non-citizen with a valid Social Security Number
  • Admitted to a degree-seeking program
  • In good standing on previous student loans (not in default)
  • Enrolled at least half-time
  • Registered with the U.S. Selective Service, if required
  • Maintaining satisfactory academic progress
Are there grants available?

We offer a limited number of need-based grants of up to $4,000. These grants are awarded in addition to merit and need-based scholarships and do not need to be repaid.

Will I need to reapply for financial aid each year?

You must apply for financial aid each year. Please complete both the FAFSA and the Institute Financial Aid applications by March 1st - just like last year!

After I've completed all that paperwork, what's next?

When you've completed the first two steps of the financial aid application process, we will review the application materials of all admitted students. Generally, we will review your application materials for two weeks before issuing an award letter. However, during peak periods, this process could take longer.

How will the Office of Student Financial Services contact me? Where will my award letter be sent?

We will contact you via the e-mail address reported on the FAFSA application. Please use an e-mail address that you check regularly.  We will use this email address to contact you for additional information and send you additional application materials and the award letter.

How will I know if I am receiving a merit scholarship, and if I should apply for the need-based grant?

If you apply for admission to a the Institute degree program by one of our priority scholarship deadlines, you will automatically be considered for a merit-based scholarship. Scholarship decisions are made and applicants are notified approximately 4 weeks after the deadline. You may also apply for the need-based grant, but these are completely separate review processes.
