Our school code for financial aid applications is: 00746900

Federal Pell Program — A federally funded grant program. Eligibility for the grant and the amount of the award is based on the student’s and their family’s financial status. To complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid online, go to

PHEAA Grant — Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency Grants are for Pennsylvania residents who are enrolled full-time (12 or more credit hours per semester).

Federal SEOG — Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant — A federally funded grant program administered by the school. Students must receive the Pell Grant and show an exceptional need in order to be eligible for the SEOG. The grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Federal Direct Stafford Loan — A long term, low interest loan made available through the federal government. No payments are due until six months after the student ceases to be enrolled at least half-time.

Federal Direct PLUS Loans — A long term variable interest rate loan made available through participating lenders to parents of dependent students. PLUS loans are not based on financial need, but are based on credit history. Repayment of interest and principal begins within 60 days after the loan is disbursed. The borrower must pay all of the interest on the loan after it is disbursed. However, principal can be deferred while the student remains in school full-time.

Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loan — This program is similar to the Federal Direct Stafford Loan program except students may have to pay interest on their loan while attending school. This loan is not need based, but the amount a student receives is influenced by their regular Stafford Loan eligibility.
