2013 - 2014 Combined Catalogs of the Colleges

Types of Aid Available


Financial Aid is categorized into two types: Gift Aid and Self-Help Aid.

  1. Gift Aid includes grants and scholarships that do not have to be repaid.
  2. Work-Study involves an award that must be earned through employment.
  3. Loans that must be repaid with interest.

In all cases, students should be completely familiar with the terms and conditions of financial aid received. Brief descriptions of the most common programs are listed on the Paying for College Web pages.

For more detailed information, please visit the Web sites listed in the Financial Aid section of this catalog. Since most programs have limited funding, it is important to apply as early as possible each year. A list of priority processing dates available on the district Paying for College Web page.
