Financial Aid

The primary purpose of the financial aid program is to enable qualified students with limited financial resources to attend Herkimer College.

Financial aid is any grant, scholarship, loan, or employment opportunity with the express purpose of assisting students with educational related expenses. Although the primary obligation for college expenses rests with the student and the student's parents, the College, the community and the State and Federal governments have programs of financial assistance that can be employed separately or in combination to meet individual needs.

Based on the IPEDS Student Financial Aid 2019-20 survey, 83% of the first-time, full-time students enrolled during the Fall 2018 semester received any type of financial aid.

Students must meet specific General Eligibility Requirements to receive financial aid, and must matriculate into a degree program by completing an admissions application.
