Blinn College encourages all students to understand their responsibility in applying for and receiving financial aid of any type. Financial Aid made available through any school is to be used for the costs of attending college. These costs clearly consist of institutional charges such as tuition and fees, on campus dorm and meal plan, but also include the living costs while attending college. The ethical standards of receiving financial aid for each student is to ensure that they are using their financial aid in accordance with federal and state regulations and for their intended purpose.
