Financial Aid and Scholarships

Education is one of the most important investments you’ll make in your career and your life. That’s why Bellin College is committed to working with you and your family to make that investment more affordable.

As a private college, we try very hard to keep our costs as low as possible while providing students with quality faculty, facilities and services.

91% of our students received some form of financial assistance through grants, scholarships, and loans from a variety of sources during the 2016-2017 academic year.

Financial Aid

What is Financial Aid?

Financial Aid is any funds received from sources other than the student or his or her family to help pay for educational expenses.

What is Financial Need?

Financial need is the difference between the student’s cost of education and the expected family contribution (EFC), as determined by the FAFSA.

If a student is receiving need based aid, aid cannot exceed the calculated financial need with the exceptions of Federal Unsubsidized Loans, Federal Parent PLUS Loans and private education loans.

Under no circumstances may a student receive aid (grants, scholarships, employment, or loans) in excess of his/her cost of education as determined by the financial aid office.

In addition to financial need, federal and state aid is contingent upon an applicant meeting several basic financial aid eligibility factors:

  • Must have a high school diploma, GED or equivalent;
  • Enrolled in an eligible program of study leading to a degree or certificate;
  • Be a US citizen or eligible non-citizen (US National or permanent resident alien with a valid I-155, I-551, or I-551C);
  • Have a valid Social Security Number;
  • Be registered with Selective Service (if required);
  • Maintain satisfactory academic progress in your program of study;
  • Not be in default on a federal student loan nor owe a refund on a federal education grant;
  • Certify that all aid funds received will be used for educational purposes
Graduate Students

Students enrolled in a Master’s Degree program have limited eligibility. Graduate students may borrow federal unsubsidized loans and may qualify for select Bellin College Scholarships.

Non-Degree Students

Students who are not enrolled in a program of study are not eligible for financial aid. This includes students taking a class as a prerequisite to enter one of our programs or taking a class to transfer to another college/university (aid may be available through that university; please check with the financial aid office at the home institution).
