Qualifying students may apply for financial aid from the Federal Pell Grant program. Students with intellectual disabilities are eligible for federal financial aid thanks to the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008. To apply for aid, students must complete a Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA).

* Based on assessment, there may be a requirement for additional hours above the stated base package, which will be assessed at $22.00 per hour.
