While there are no reported cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) at Hood College, it is with the utmost concern for the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and community at-large that we announce the cancellation of all on-campus recruitment visits and events through May 15. For more information regarding coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit our COVID-19 Updates page.

For additional questions regarding admissions, visits, or events please visit our Visits and Events page or contact The Office of Admission at admission@hood.edu 

During this time the Financial Aid Office will be open and available to answer any questions you have by phone or email.Sign up for an appointment here.

Our office will be accepting documents and forms via email and fax. Our office can accept documents in a PDF or JPEG format. While it is possible to email documents into the office; please remember to encrypt personal identifying information (SSN or tax documents) before sending. If a document is sent by fax, please provide a cover sheet.

Selecting the right school is important. But so is paying for it.

College takes drive, passion and resources. At Hood, we’re here to help you with all 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 affordable.

More than $39 million are awarded annually to more than 98 percent of our undergraduate students, in the form of:

  • Scholarships
  • Grants
  • Loans
  • Federal work study program

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.
