Financial aid funding is limited and must be distributed in an equitable and consistent manner.

Once need based financial aid eligibility has been established, a financial aid package is constructed following a step-wise approach until financial need is met.

The priority order is:

  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
  • Federal Direct Loan
  • Federal Work Study
  • State Grants
  • Connecticut College Grant (including merit scholarships)
