Financial Aid Overview

Hood College understands that locating financial assistance may be a major concern for families in pursuing a college education.  It is the mission of the Office of Financial Aid to help students and their families develop a financial plan to make a Hood College education affordable and to assist students throughout the financial aid process.

Each year, Hood College awards more than $6 million in merit-based scholarships, including scholarships for first-year students entering from high school as well as for students transferring from other colleges. Students admitted to Hood are automatically considered for most merit scholarships, the majority of which are renewable for up to four years (although some require a minimum G.P.A. for their renewal). Overall academic performance, specific academic achievements, leadership and participation in school and community activities are important factors in awarding scholarships to both first-year and transfer students.

To apply for financial aid, students need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. Read More
