What is financial aid? 

Through a combination of undergraduate financial aid opportunities, we make it possible for many first-year and transfer students from diverse backgrounds to get the education they need to succeed in their chosen fields.

Financial aid packages are made up of several components:

  • Hamline scholarships and grants
  • Outside scholarships and grants
  • Federal scholarships and grants
  • Student employment (Work-study)
  • State scholarships and grants  
  • Loans

Scholarships and grants are forms of financial aid that you do not have to pay back. A variety of loans are available specifically for higher education costs. If you qualify, you can work on campus.
