Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP)
This is the Houghton advantage: graduating with financial confidence from a top-ranked institution of Christian higher education.
Houghton College made national news in 2013 when we became the first college in the entire eastern United States to offer a Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) to all incoming students. We took this bold move in order to demonstrate that fear of student debt should not lead families to think that they have to choose between a high-quality, deeply Christian education and an affordable education.
Now in our third year of offering LRAP, Houghton continues this commitment to college access by offering LRAP to qualified incoming students. Qualifying for LRAP is based on a variety of factors, including financial aid eligibility and career plans, among others.
The first step to determine whether or not you qualify for LRAP is to apply for admission. If you are admitted and once you apply for financial aid by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), we will work with you to determine your eligibility.
