Finance Your Education
Gratz College offers a wide variety of ways to pay for your college experience. Students may take advantage of Federal Financial Aid (loans), Gratz College institutional fellowships and scholarships, and partner organization discounts. Some students also get financial support or reimbursements from their employers, and others may qualify for military college benefits. Most students use a combination of funding sources.
For students who are paying all or some expenses out of pocket, there are also convenient payment plans which break up tuition payments into smaller installments. During the pandemic, there are no additional fees for payment plans.
All students wishing to apply for federal and institutional aid must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To make sure your Student Aid Report (SAR) is sent to Gratz College, please use our Federal School Code: 004058.
