What is Financial Aid?
Financial aid is money to help students and their families pay for college. Financial aid can come from the U.S. federal government, the state where the student lives, the school the student attends, or a nonprofit or private organization. Financial aid is assistance that covers educational expenses including tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and transportation. Several types of financial aid include grants, institutional and external scholarships, work-study, and loans.
All domestic students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to receive federal/ institutional aid while enrolled at Howard University.
