In order to assist students who are unable to meet the cost of financing a college education, the Office of Student Financial Aid administers an extensive program of scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time employment opportunities. Demonstrated financial need is the primary factor used in the awarding of financial aid, although some scholarships are given each year in recognition of superior academic achievement or special talent.

Approximately 92 percent of full-time freshmen applied for financial aid in the fall 2011 semester, and 70 percent of those students were awarded need-based financial assistance. The average need-based financial aid package was $9,843. This includes scholarships, grants, loans, and federal work-study employment.
