Saint Vincent College offers both merit-based aid and need-based financial aid to degree-seeking undergraduate students. Merit-based awards are based on high school performance including standardized test scores and high school grade point average. Merit awards are guaranteed for eight semesters with satisfactory academic progress and are for full-time attendance.
Saint Vincent College also offers many other awards and grants which are in addition to the merit awards, such as the First-Generation Grant, Catholic High School Graduate Grant, Out-of-State Grant, Wimmer Scholarship Exam, and others. With the exception of the Wimmer Exam, these awards and grants are open to all students.
All students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA – Free Application for Federal Student Aid. By completing the FAFSA the student is applying for federal and state grants. Completion of the FAFSA is necessary if the student or parent wishes to borrow through the Federal Direct Loan Program.
