We wouldn’t blame you for thinking that the most important question to ask about financial assistance is, "Why doesn't Grove City College accept my federal aid package?" The answer is because we’re safeguarding one of the founding principles of the College: Independence. We view our institutional autonomy as a blessing of America's heritage of freedom. But that's not the end of the story. We offer plenty of options for any student who may need assistance is subsidizing tuition and when you add them all up, Grove City College students can actually receive more support at a lower interest rate than what federal loans can deliver.
Grove City College takes a straight-forward approach to tuition and scholarships. Tuition rates reflect the actual cost of an education, not an inflated figure that can be "discounted" to attract students and boost egos. When we offer merit-based scholarships, it's not an accounting trick. It's real money.
Working on campus is a great way to make college a little more affordable. Best of all, we give priority to the students who need financial assistance the most. Find an opportunity that’s right for you.
Paying off school debt is an achievement that we want every Grove City College graduate to experience as soon as possible. We work with financial institutions to secure student loan options that allow you to breathe easy, knowing that the interest rates are fair and the opportunity to pay back what you borrow is within reach.
