Need-based aid may be raised
The 2004-2005 financial aid increase will primarily benefit current students with need-based grants, but their out-of-pocket expenses are still growing.

The Office of Scholarships and Student Financial Aid is currently looking for a way help need-based grants catch up with the rising cost of tuition.

Normally when tuition goes up, need-based grants go up proportionally, said Michael Scott, director of scholarships and student financial aid. However, this is not always an effective solution to rising costs, he said.
