Financial Aid and On-Campus Housing

Financial Aid can play an important part in helping a student cover the costs of tuition, fees, books and on-campus student housing. We encourage you to complete a FAFSA® (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at least three months before beginning classes (or as early as October 1 for the next academic year). Early filing may help your eligibility for different types of financial aid. Below you will find a short FAQ for student living in on-campus student housing. 

We highly recommend that you contact a Financial Aid Advisor by phone (541-383-7260) or by email with any questions.
