• Scholarships and Financial Aid

    A Hamline education is an investment that will change your life. And it's affordable. Academic scholarships of $3,000-22,000 are available and are renewable annually. We also work closely with families and their potentially changing economic circumstances to ensure financial aid packages that will allow students that will allow students to graduate on time. In fact, Hamline guarantees that you'll earn your bachelor's degree in four years or we'll pay the difference. This could represent a potential savings to you of $40,000-60,000 in tuition and lost income.


    Named a “Great School, Great Price" by U.S. News & World Report, Hamline is not only a sound investment, but a great value.  Here’s why:

    • We offer competitive financial aid and scholarship opportunities

    • Our four year assurance: you’ll earn your bachelor’s degree in four years or we’ll pay the difference (a potential savings of $40,000-60,000)

    • We encourage you to apply for outside scholarships and grants (we won’t reduce the amount of scholarship dollars we give you)
