Financial Aid & College Admission

applying for financial aid Does applying for financial aid hurt your chances of admission? Well, it depends on the school.

The Pell Grant is free money disbursed by the government to low-income undergraduate students to help pay for their tuition. Currently, students can receive up to $5,550 per year.  Across America, nearly 9 million students take advantage of this program to help fund their education.
