Eligibility and Program Requirements

We're pleased that you've chosen to be a part of the Hope family, and we're here to help! Let's get started with some basic information.

Financial aid (FA) is available based on your individual financial need. "Financial need" is defined as "the cost of attendance (COA) minus your estimated family contribution (EFC)." Your EFC is calculated using a formula set by the U.S. Department of Education on their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) web site Our tuition is listed by program in the current catalog. Please note: you can still apply for federal financial aid even if you plan to receive 100% company reimbursement for tuition and books. However, estimated company reimbursement, certain VA benefits, and outside scholarships you receive will be taken into account when aid eligibility is determined. Remember, not all students will qualify for need-based aid.
