    There are a number of different types of aid available to you at Ursuline College. In addition to the information provided on this page, our knowledgeable and attentive Office of Financial Aid staff is ready to help answer your questions and provide one-on-one consultations.



    Merit Scholarships

    Ursuline College offers a variety of scholarships based on academic performance to first-year students coming directly from High School. The scholarship program has recently been revised to include new awards for our brightest students. Our most prestigious awards — Presidential and Dean’s Scholarships — are offered to those students whose credentials are above and beyond the general scholarship requirements. In addition to strong academic performance, we consider leadership, extracurricular activities, and community service important factors.

    Grants

    Grants are need-based funds that do not have to be repaid. They come from a variety of sources and can be related to your intended major, financial need, or even your housing preferences.


    Federal Pell Grant

    A Federal Pell Grant is awarded to undergraduate students who have high financial need and have not previously earned a bachelors or professional degree. Federal Pell Grant amounts vary based on need and enrollment level (e.g. full time, three-quarter time, half-time, etc). The Pell Grant now has a lifetime limit amount of six full-time years or 12 full-time semesters (maximum percentage of 600%). Any student reaching that limit will no longer be eligible to receive this grant, regardless of need. Completion of the FAFSA is required to apply for this grant.

    Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG)

    Federal SEOG funds are awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need. Priority is given to students who receive a Federal Pell Grant.

    State Grants (Ohio Residents)

    The State of Ohio provides need-based grant funds through the Ohio College Opportunity Grant (OCOG) to full and part-time students attending institutions within state. Application for this grant is made through submitting the FAFSA. The deadline to submit your FAFSA in order to apply for this grant is October 1st of the award year.

    Ursuline Funds and Endowed Funds

    Ursuline College provides numerous grants and scholarships based on need and various other criteria. Students must complete the FAFSA application and meet the criteria of the donor to be awarded these funds. There is no separate application. We use your cost and financial need to determine your eligibility for endowed funds.




    Loans

    Loan funds must be repaid, typically after graduation. Most Ursuline students report that their loan was worth it, and find that their payments are manageable after graduation.



    Federal Work Study

    Federal Work-Study provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the student’s course of study.
