An Affordable, Quality Education Can Be Yours
St. Francis College offers a comprehensive financial aid program that mixes institutional scholarships and student employment with federal grants and loans, as well as state grants . To be considered for any financial assistance, students are required to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each school year. The FAFSA may be completed online at www.fafsa.ed.gov beginning October 1 for the following academic year. For example, students who plan to enroll for September 2018 may begin the financial aid process on October 1, 2017.
