Good afternoon, Nikol. There are ways to be awarded more financial aid but it is dependent upon what selections you make on your FAFSA. If you are looking to receive only aid that does not have to be repaid, you should select the work study option. With this option, please know that you may have to supplement you unmet need with scholarships or by paying out of pocket. I would recommend that you find out about state funds that may be available for students as well.
