Financial Aid Options

Scholarships

By completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you will automatically be considered for most scholarships. Merit Scholarships based on academic achievement are considered only at the time of admittance to the University. Simpson offers six unique affinity scholarships. These scholarships require an additional application and documentation. These scholarships are not stackable with other aid offers. Visit our Scholarships for more information on the scholarships we offer.

Loans

Direct student loan programs provide long term, low interest loans for students. Students must enroll at least half time (6 credits for undergraduate, 5 credits for graduate students) each term to qualify for federal student loans.

Grants

Gift aid that does not have to be repaid. Grants are mostly awarded to undergraduate degree seeking students with demonstrated financial need as determined by the FAFSA.

Federal Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study program (FWS) provides students with part-time employment. Eligibility for this program is contingent upon financial need and available funds. Students must complete a FAFSA to be considered for FWS.
