Financial Aid

We know that the financial aid process can be a confusing one. And it can be very stressful, especially if you are counting on financial aid to make it possible for you to attend college.

Our goal is to help you understand the variety of assistance options available to you and help you navigate the many steps involved in applying for financial aid.

Here is a very brief overview of what you should know when you first start to think about financial aid.
  • All students start by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is administered by the federal government, and can be made applicable to several colleges at once.
  • Based on your FAFSA data, you may be eligible for two types of aid: gifts (which you don't have to repay) and self-help (which you either earn through work-study or repay as loans).
  • Gifts offered at Husson are based on a range of factors. A list of Husson scholarships is available on the scholarships page.
  • Self-help aid is available in the form of student loans and work-study, for which we offer a variety of positions through the student employment office.
  • Husson also offers payment plans, which are available to families regardless of their need.

We have prepared several pages of information to help guide you through the many aspects of applying for financial aid. These pages should answer many of your questions about financial aid at Husson. However, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us--we will be more than glad to answer your questions.

Financial aid can vary depending on a student's academic standing and financial circumstances. The department and program the student is enrolled in can also affect aid. For more information, please contact Husson University's Office of Financial Aid at finaid@husson.edu or 207.941.7156.
