Geneva College is committed to making an academically excellent, Christ-centered college education affordable for students from all economic backgrounds. In fact, Geneva awards over $12,000,000 in grants and scholarships from college funds each year. And, including federal, state and private grants, nearly 100% of Geneva College's students receive some type of aid.
Our enrollment and financial aid staff prioritizes helping students to maximize the amount of financial aid that they receive. But to receive the best award possible, students must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. Completing the FAFSA not only qualifies students to receive any federal and state grants and loans for which they may qualify, but also additional need-based funds from Geneva College beyond academic scholarships.
The financial aid available at Geneva often proves to be the deciding factor for students, as well as an affirmation that God is guiding them to enroll here. A recent grad reports, “I am convinced that Geneva has been exactly the place God has wanted me for the last few years, and He chose to show me that through opening up a flood of generous Geneva aid.”
In order for future students to receive a full financial aid package, they must complete both an application and the FAFSA. Geneva’s financial aid staff begins to review information in March, so priority consideration is given to those who submit all necessary information as early as possible. But all students should complete the FAFSA, no matter when they begin the application process. When completing the FAFSA, students must include Geneva’s federal school code–00326700–so that the college will receive their information.
For those that require assistance with the FAFSA, Geneva’s expert financial aid staff conducts a number of webinars and presentations. Information on upcoming presentations and archived versions of past sessions are available on the website.
“Students and their families are concerned about the cost of higher education, and navigating all the financial decisions can be challenging,” says Steve Bell, Director of Financial Aid. “Our admissions and financial aid counselors can help by working directly with you to explore scholarship opportunities, payment plans and loan options.”
