Financial Aid

在特里顿学院,我们为提供负担得起的教育而感到自豪. 而Triton的学费比大多数主要学院和大学都要低, 预算紧张的个人和家庭可能仍然难以支付他们的年度开支. 经济援助的目的是帮助学生和他们的家庭弥合自己的资源和就读特里顿学院的费用之间的差距.

在Triton注册的学生最多可以获得一个学分的经济援助. 这种援助的形式可能是助学金、贷款、在校工作或各种奖学金. 我们的大多数经济援助计划都是基于每个学生的经济需求. 无论你的经济状况如何,我们都可以帮助你支付大学学费.

How to Apply for Financial Aid

要申请经济援助,您必须在FAFSA填写联邦学生援助免费申请(FAFSA).gov.

Based on the financial information you enter on the FAFSA, 政府用一个公式来决定你能自掏腰包付多少大学学费. That number is your Expected Family Contribution, or EFC. Triton将从学校每年的出勤费用(包括学费)中减去你的EFC, living expenses, books, supplies and transportation) to determine your financial need.

If you qualify for need-based financial aid, 你将获得助学金,以满足你的部分或全部经济需求.

如果你没有收到足够的礼物援助来支付你的出席费用, or if you did not qualify for any aid at all, 你将有机会申请学生贷款和/或Triton的勤工俭学计划.
