Federal grants are awarded on the basis of need, which is determined by your FAFSA. The federal grants are the most popular form of aid among students as they don't need to pay it back. As far as Oral Robert's financial aid is concerned, around 88% of the students receive institutional grants which are also the highest form of federal grants in terms of percentage distribution.

Apart from the grants you are also financially aided by scholarships, work-study, or through student loans. Though a student loan is an effective and convenient way of financial aid, it shall be noted that you need to pay it back and also pay interest on the principal amount.

A comprehensive analysis of various aid and grants have been done by us and is broken down of its many intricacies so as to provide a simplistic yet thorough understanding of the financial aids.

An applicant has to file FAFSA and receive SAR to determine financial eligibility and family's position to pay for education
