Financial Aid Resource Lab

Have questions about financial aid? The Financial Aid Resource Lab (FARL) can help! Schedule a free virtual appointment with our Financial Aid Resource Lab assistants, who can give you one-on-one help with the financial aid process. This service is open to current and future students as well as community members. If you have questions about how to pay for college, we have answers. Completing the FAFSA or ORSAA application is the first step in securing federal or state financial aid, including grants, work study and student loans.
