Financial Aid

Our emphasis on educating the whole person is deeply rooted in the teachings of  St. Francis of Assisi. You will develop intellectually, emotionally, socially, physically, and spiritually during your time in college. Our mission calls us to provide educational opportunities to a diverse and academically talented student body. Without substantial financial aid, a college education would be unavailable to these very students who enrich our campus community.

There are a wide variety of scholarships and awards available. Our experienced financial aid representatives are here to help you explore all of the financial aid options that will help meet your family’s specific needs.
