Financial Aid

Purpose/Philosophy

Hesston College assists its students by offering a variety of merit-based scholarships. Federal financial aid and some Hesston College grants are awarded on the basis of need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Financial aid is used to supplement, not replace, family resources for college. The total amount of institutional scholarships and grants is capped at 80% of tuition. Exceeding this cap requires joint approval by the director of Financial Aid and the vice president of Admissions.
