Whether you’re an undergraduate, graduate, or transfer student who's learning more about us, you’ve already applied, or you’ve been accepted, this is an exciting time. Within this excitement, you’re likely learning to navigate the financial aid process. This can be the part that feels most overwhelming–but we’re here to help.
Most of our students are eligible for some type of aid, whether a grant, scholarship, work study program, or loan. The Office of Financial Aid can help determine which of these will work best for you.
We can guide you through the steps–from filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (you’ll hear it called the FAFSA) to calculating tuition (we can even give you an estimate of those expenses that might be overlooked) to determining which paperwork needs to be submitted and when.
Mostly, we want you to know that you’re not alone in this. We are here to answer your questions and help you determine financing options in order to attend Springfield College. It's important to us because we know how important it is to you.
Let’s get started.
Financial Aid Information
Financial Aid Confidential Information Waiver
FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) is a federal law protecting the confidentiality of the student’s records. In compliance with FERPA, the Office of Financial Aid must have the student’s written authorization to discuss information from their financial aid file to anyone other than a custodial parent(s) that is designated on the current academic year’s FAFSA. Completing the waiver will allow whomever the student designates to communicate with the Office of Financial Aid. This waiver will remain on file and in effect until graduation, withdrawal from the college or a written statement to change or eliminate designees.
Best Value for the Best Education
Springfield College was ranked for the third-consecutive year as a Best Value School by U.S.News and World Report thanks to our high-quality educational offerings and low cost.
According to U.S.News and World Report, the higher the quality of the academic programs and the lower the cost, the better the value.
