Investing in an Education
We want every family to have access to quality education. One hundred percent of our first-year students receive some kind of financial assistance. You can use our aid calculators to see what aid your family might receive. The Academic Scholarship Calculator and Net Price Calculator are available on our Office of Financial Aid website.
Students can be involved in over 35 clubs and 20 inter-collegiate athletic teams on campus. These activities help students make friends and be successful. Participation in student activities supplements our students’ education through teamwork and leadership. We provide clubs that support professional growth (think Accounting Club for accounting majors) and “for-fun” clubs that support personal development.
