Types of Aid

Multiple options, multiple opportunities.

To help meet your educational costs, grants, scholarships, loans, and other programs are available. Please review the various funding options under Federal Aid, Grants, Loans, and Veteran & Active Duty Benefits

You are also encouraged to apply for USCB scholarships. Please review the Scholarship Process for instructions and deadline information.

Financial aid & scholarships awarded to USCB students in the 2015-16 academic year totaled $20.1 million.

Your financial aid package, along with your personal and/or family resources, will assist you in meeting your educational expenses. Eligibility for various programs is determined by the results of filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Financial Aid). 

A federal formula is then applied to the data you submitted on your FAFSA, and the results of this formula provide the calculations that determine how much you and your family should be able to provide toward meeting the cost of your education.  (Your financial need is calculated by subtracting your expected family contribution from your cost of attendance.)
