Financial Aid

What is Financial Aid exactly?

Financial aid is money for direct and indirect college expenses. This money comes in three forms:

  • Grants which DO NOT have to be repaid
  • Loans which DO have to be repaid
  • Part-time jobs from which the student earns an hourly wage also known as Federal Work Study.

Students who are awarded financial aid may receive any or all of these forms of aid.

Financial Aid Funds Defined

The college's financial aid program assists students who are unable to meet their expenses entirely from their own family resources. Students must be enrolled in an eligible degree, diploma or certificate program in order to be considered for financial assistance, and must meet both qualitative and quantitative standards for satisfactory progress. These standards are described in the Financial Aid Handbook. Completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form (FAFSA) is required for consideration for Pell Grants, Work Study, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Stafford Loans and the New Hampshire Incentive Program. The application is available in the college's Financial Aid Office, at local high schools, and online at
