Financial Aid

College is an investment, one that can be affordable. Unlike a brand new car that loses its value as soon as you drive off the lot, your college education never depreciates.

Our representatives will make sure you leave with no question unanswered. They will ensure that you have a clear understanding of the student aid process and an awareness of what your financial responsibilities are. College is an investment that will take you to places you never thought you could go. So let’s go!

FAQs for Financial Aid:

How can I apply for Student Aid/Financial Aid?

First, fill out the FAFSA online application. Then after completing FAFSA and applying to Esperanza College, you can make an appointment with our Student Financial Service Office to find out your personal cost of attendance.

What is the FAFSA?

The FAFSA is the acronym for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. It is an application that determines the student financial aid eligibility in the Unites States. This application asks for financial information to help the federal government determine the amount of student aid for which you could be eligible. To fill out this form go to the FAFSA website: Esperanza College’s FAFSA school code is 003259 (under Eastern University).

What is an FSA ID?

An FSA ID gives you access to Federal Student Aid’s online systems and can serve as your legal signature. Learn how to create an FSA ID.

When is the FAFSA Deadline?

The deadline to submit the FAFSA in order to be considered for Pennsylvania’s state grant is May 1. The Department of Education starts accepting FAFSA submissions as early as October 1 of every year. Students are advised to complete this application as early as possible; preferably before May 1 of every year to be eligible for the best possible financial aid package. Pennsylvania will sometimes award the state grant to students after the deadline on a first-come, first-serve basis if funding is still available, so students should complete the FAFSA as soon as possible even if they already missed the deadline.

Are there any scholarships, grants, & loans that I can apply for?

Every student that attends Esperanza College receives our Esperanza Grant, which for full time students covers over 50% of tuition! You can be eligible to receive other grants and loans by filling out FAFSA. There are also other outside scholarships for which you may qualify and apply. Click here for more information.
