We offer Financial Aid to 100% of our students! Not 98. Not 99. 100!

LEAD Program

Let's make a deal. If you agree to participate in campus events we'll give you $5,000 off your tuition every year. Sound good?

Originating in 2000, Leading, Educating, Achieving, Developing, or as we call it, LEAD, has provided more than $30 million worth of financial assistance to our students. And there are no need based restrictions, literally every students who commits to being involved on campus is offered the LEAD award.

Many of you are probably thinking, what counts as involvement on campus?

Just to rattle off a few, attending events such as guest speakers, concerts, films, seminars, intercollegiate athletic events, involvement in student organizations and student/faculty exhibits all count as participation! Since pretty much everyone on campus is involved with our LEAD program you'll always have a friend to accompany you to these events!
