Categories of Aid
There are 2 categories of financial aid-Gift Aid and Self Help Aid
Gift Aid is funding which requires nothing in exchange for the dollars received, e.g., grants or scholarships. Self Help Aid, on the other hand, requires some type of reimbursement, usually in the form of work, loan payments, or service.

Specific programs are discussed in detail on the following pages. Program regulations often restrict eligibility based upon the student's academic classification or course of study. Refer to the College Key when reviewing aid programs to determine their appropriateness to your course of study.
