The three basic types of student financial assistance are scholarships/grants, loans, and work-study.

  • Scholarships/grants are gift aids that do not have to be repaid.
  • Loans are funds that have to be repaid with interest.
  • Work-study, usually employment on campus or off-campus. This program provides opportunities for students to earn money to apply toward their educational expenses.
