The mission of the Office of Financial Aid is
to assist students in finding ways to pay for their college education
such as scholarships, grants, student loans, and on campus employment.
Most students attending Clinton College receive some form of
financial aid. Financial Aid
at Clinton College consists of:
- Grants – Gift money (does not require repayment or a work
commitment) from federal, state, College, or private funds. Grants are
awarded on the basis of financial need.
- Loans – Money one may borrow from federal sources,
College sources, or private lenders. Clinton College financial aid
administrators manage these educational loans in accordance to federal
financial aid requirements to ensure that your interests are protected.
See the Financial Aid Manual.
- Work – Money one earns through Federal Work Study
employment on campus, in community service agencies, or in approved
- Scholarships – Gift money (does not require repayment or a
work commitment). Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic
achievement, individual talent, and/or possibly some other criteria

Students receiving Federal Financial Assistance are required to meet the
College's standards of academic progress. Additional, Federal
requirements restrict the time frame that students receiving aid have to
complete their program and require completion of a minimum number of
credit hours each term. Failure to do so may result in termination of
financial aid eligibility. Detailed information on the financial aid
standards will be issued to all students receiving financial aid.
All awards of need-based financial aid are made annually, and students
must reapply each year by completing a new or renewal FAFSA in order to
be considered for assistance.
All students are
encouraged to apply at least six to eight weeks in advance of the term
they plan to enter.
