The College offers a limited number of partial scholarships to students who are academically prepared and demonstrate financial need. Partial scholarships, which are applied directly to the cost of tuition, are renewable for four years provided the student maintains a 2.00 GPA and an upstanding social record as a full-time student. Students must continue to show financial need and submit the International Student Financial Aid Application annually.
Typically, the yearly amount of the partial scholarship remains consistent for the duration of the student's attendance. It is assumed that, in accepting a partial scholarship from the College, the student intends to complete an undergraduate degree at Grove City College.
The College has work opportunities available on campus to provide financial assistance. These positions are prioritized by financial need. Students who excel in particular fields are often given an opportunity to serve as departmental, laboratory, or library assistants. By working five to six hours weekly, a student can earn approximately $1,000 during the academic year. Students are paid monthly for the number of hours they work and may use the money as needed for college-related expenses. Freshmen are not permitted to work more than 10 hours a week. Upperclassmen may work up to 20 hours a week.
Work opportunities in maintenance capacities are also available on campus during breaks and summer vacation. Students who work on campus over the summer typically earn about $1,500. Since on-campus housing is not provided during breaks and summer vacation, it is necessary for students to find off-campus accommodations.
International students can apply for on-campus work through the Office of Student Employment. For additional information on financial aid contact us at 724-458-3300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The SEVIS I-20 will be issued to incoming freshmen students after the student has been accepted to Grove City College and partial payment of semester fees has been received. Students must complete all financial arrangements before arriving at the College.
