Springfield College makes admissions decisions without regard to the student’s ability to pay educational expenses. College grant funds are awarded primarily on the basis of financial need. State and federal funds are awarded and disbursed subject to the program regulations of the awarding agency. Eligibility based on financial need is determined by estimating cost of attendance and subtracting family contribution as calculated by federal, state, and college regulations. The College does not meet full need for all eligible students.
File a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. An application for financial aid must be completed for each academic year. Our school code is 002211.
