Financial Aid

Money Matters

The Office of Financial Aid administers a variety of programs to assist in meeting the financial needs to attend college. The department assists students with Federal and State financial aid programs, student loans, state scholarships, and Federal Work-Study. Applications and explanations of the aid available can be found here. We encourage you to stop by one of our locations in Goodman, Grenada, or Ridgeland or email our staff with questions.
