Financial Aid Summary
Each student has a unique financial situation when applying for financial aid. Below you will find a summary of the most common paths our students take to finance their Houghton education.
Many employers have a tuition reimbursement plan. Check with your employer to see if this benefit is offered. If so, forward a copy of your reimbursement policy to our Student Financial Services Advisor. Houghton College will provide all of the necessary documentation to enable students to receive the maximum available benefits. Many people are unaware that their employers offer this benefit, so we encourage you to ask!
Complete and submit the 2013–2014 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov using your 2012 federal tax information. The FAFSA is the first step in obtaining financial aid, including TAP and Pell Grants. See the Applying for Aid page for more information.
Several payment plan options are available, including online payment by check, credit card, or a monthly payment agreement. Contact our student financial services advisor to determine which plan works best for you and your specific financial situation.
There are many outside scholarships that are available for adult learners. Review a list of some local scholarships that our students have had success with in the past. We encourage you to explore and research scholarship opportunities on your own, and we will assist you any way we can with the application process. Every little bit helps!
