There are three different types of financial aid:
Grants are gifts of money that you do not need to repay. They are awarded based on financial need.
Work-study is financial aid that you earn by working at a university job. The opportunity is awarded based on financial need, and Career Services can then help you find a specific work-study position.
Student loans are borrowed money that you will need to repay after you leave school.
