A brief description of other financial aid policies or programs to make the institution accessible and affordable to low-income students:
Stonehill College awards financial aid, as funds permit, on the basis of demonstrated financial need and academic performance. Certain sources of financial aid are based solely on merit; most is based on financial need; some on a combination of both.
A complete financial aid application is required for initial consideration and renewal of all institutional need-based funds. Consideration for and renewal of merit-only funds does not require the filing of a financial aid application. Every student who provides a complete financial aid application is offered self-help assistance in the form of a Federal Direct Student Loan and, possibly, work-study.
Stonehill attempts to meet every student’s financial need with institutional and government resources. Because sufficient resources are not always available to meet 100% of every student’s need; there is considerable competition for funds. Priority is given to students who demonstrate exceptional need, perform at outstanding academic levels, and complete the application process by stated deadlines.
