How to pay for college
Paying for college isn't just about tuition -- it includes student fees, room and board, class materials, transportation fees, and more. See: Standard Student Budget 2020-21
To pay for all of these costs, students use four main sources of financing: grants, scholarships, savings/investment accounts, loans, and work study. We want students to receive as much grant and scholarship funding as they can, since these do NOT have to be paid back.
