Financial Aid

You may qualify for the same kinds of federal financial aid and loans used by traditional in-seat undergraduate students. Note, however, that if you have already taken advantage of these programs in the past, your aid may be limited. The choice of pursuing your HIA degree as a part- or full-time student will also impact your financial aid package.


How to Apply

To determine the amount of financial aid you are eligible to receive, please submit your FAFSA (Stephens Code: 002512) at

You may check federal loan eligibility at The National Student Loan Data System has information about your federal student loans. (Students seeking the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate are not eligible to use any federal funding; however, these students may seek private loans).

Students may contact Financial Aid counselors at (573) 876-7106 or [email protected].


Should I Apply for Financial Aid?

Although you don’t have to be accepted at Stephens College before applying for financial aid, you do have to be admitted to Stephens before any financial aid can be awarded. You will be required to file a FAFSA each year you are a student at Stephens in order to reapply for financial aid. Even if you are certain you won’t qualify for need-based assistance, it’s a good idea to file the FAFSA so that you may be able to qualify for aid if your financial situation changes.


Financial Aid Checklist

To receive a financial aid package, a student must:

  • Be registered
  • Have a current FAFSA on file
  • Be in Ready to Package (RP) status (complete verification if needed or turn in any missing documents)

Once all documents are received, we will package and send an award letter via email.
