    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is there a quick way to determine if I will receive financial aid? 

    Yes. Visit https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa and enter basic information to receive an estimate of your expected family contribution (EFC).

    If your EFC is less than Hamline’s costs, you will be eligible for need-based financial aid at Hamline, which may include federal, state, or Hamline monies. If your EFC is higher than our costs, you will still be eligible for merit-based scholarships, work study, and loan opportunities.

     If I don’t show eligibility for need-based financial aid, does Hamline offer scholarships?

    Academic scholarships are awarded to students regardless of family income or assets, and are based on high school transcript, accomplishments, and potential.

    How do I pay for Hamline? 

    Hamline University is sensitive to the financial concerns of its students and families. We know that a quality education is a significant investment -- it is our objective to be your partner in this venture. To assist, we have established two payment plan options:

    Semester plan: Make two payments—by August 15 for the fall semester and by January 15 for the spring semester. This is the default payment plan and you’ll be enrolled in this option unless you elect one of the other two plans.

    Installment plan: Make 10 monthly payments over the academic year. Payments are due beginning August 1 and ending May 1. The cost for the installment plan is $75 per year or $40 per semester.

    You may pay with cash, check, or MasterCard, Discover, VISA, or American Express credit cards with a convenience fee.
