Financial Aid

Quality Meets Affordability

College takes drive, passion and resources. At Hood, we’re here to help you with all of it, even the money part.

We recognize that families often need to look outside their immediate resources in order to help their students take the fullest advantage of the Hood College experience. It is the mission of the Office of Financial Aid to help you and your family develop a financial plan to make your education attainable.

More than $40 million are awarded annually to more than 99 percent of our undergraduate students, in the form of:

  • Scholarships
  • Grants
  • Loans
  • Student employment programs

Don’t assume that you won’t qualify for need-based financial aid. We encourage all students to complete and submit the FAFSA form. Our staff will work with you to figure out how to make a Hood education affordable for you and your family. It’s worth it. You’re worth it.

The Office of Financial Aid is open and available to answer any questions you have:
