2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog

Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office assists students and parents in finding resources necessary to finance university costs. Financial aid is available to all undergraduate students who are fully or provisionally admitted to the University, a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, maintain satisfactory progress while completing the program of study, and meet the specific eligibility requirements of each financial aid program. Eligibility for most programs is based on financial need as determined through filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In the awarding of financial aid, Greenville University does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, sex, color, national origin, or physical handicap.

Resources in the form of scholarships are available in recognition of meritorious achievement in high school or in college. Government assistance is available to qualifying students in the form of student loans. Greenville University is a participant in the Federal Direct Student Loan Program. This program allows students to borrow either through the Federal Direct Subsidized Student Loan Program (no interest charged while in school) or the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Student Loan Program (interest charged for life of loan). Both programs offer deferred repayment options and an extended repayment period of up to ten years depending on total amount borrowed.


Any student in default on a Federal Student Loan Program (Direct, Stafford, Perkins, PLUS, ICL, or Consolidated Loan) is not eligible for federal grants or loans, and may not participate in the Tuition Management System (TMS) monthly payment option.
