Remember, loans must be paid back, Pell Grants do not. Students do not have to accept all aid offered – but can choose to accept only as much as they need. Check with the Coordinator of Veteran Affairs and/or the Student Aid Office to ensure multiple sources of funding are being applied to the greatest benefit.
