Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available for students pursuing bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. There are different types of aid depending on each individual student’s financial situation.  Filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is one of the first steps to take. Our staff advises and helps you do this, if needed. Five Towns College is a modestly priced private institution but we recognize that college tuition may be expensive for some students. So, we strive to help!
