Navigating how to finance your education can be an overwhelming process. That’s why we’re committed to making this process as clear as possible. There’s a big difference between the cost of your education (tuition, books, fees, living expenses, etc.) and what you’re actually expected to pay. That’s where financial aid comes in – it’s meant to reduce the gap!
