Our knowledgeable Financial Aid team will work with you and your family to navigate your options and find awards, merit scholarships, need-based grants and a variety of state and federal aid. If your financial situation changes during your college journey, talk with your financial aid counselor. We regularly review special circumstances for adjustments.


The Stephens Promise

Stephens College has launched The Stephens Promise program, which reflects the College’s commitment to making education affordable for our students who often must turn to loans to cover the cost of their college education.

The program will be available beginning in Fall 2024 for all current, new and transfer undergraduate students who meet the criteria.
