    • Federal Pell Grant
    • Federal Direct Loans
    • Federal Work-Study

  • Private aid sources
    • Churches
    • Private foundations

The financial aid office assists students and their families with college expenses by helping them identify and qualify for the financial resources needed to achieve their goal of becoming servant-leaders for the church.
