Paying for School

Student Financial Aid Services works with federal and private programs to help students fund their education, including scholarships, grants, loans, work-study or a combination of these programs.
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
In order to be eligible for federal or state financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students whose FAFSAs are received by the U.S. Department of Education Federal Processor by midnight Central time (10:00 p.m. Coeur d’Alene time) on February 15 will receive priority consideration for need-based scholarships, college Work-Study and Perkins Loans for the next academic year. In addition, the FAFSA results will determine eligibility to receive Pell Grants and/or Direct Loans.
All admitted students are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. You must complete a FAFSA to be considered for need-based scholarships. For information about eligibility and an explanation of other types of financial aid including Pell grants, work study and student loans, please visit the Financial Aid website.
