Student Financial Services
A Helping Hand
Approximately 99 percent of all Ursinus students receive some form of assistance. For 2019-2020 Ursinus administered over $71 million in financial aid— over $47.5 million in the form of institutional scholarships and grants that do not have to be repaid. The funding for our institutional scholarships are partially underwritten by generous Ursinus alumni, friends, foundations, and corporations. Thousands of supporters are stepping up each year to help you afford Ursinus.
In addition to providing instruction and counseling on applying for need-based financial aid, and determining eligibility for such funding, our office provides guidance on financing the cost of an Ursinus education via private student and parent loans and payment plans as well as information relating to bill charges, payments and federal student loans.
In addition to administering financial aid, The Office of Student Financial Services serves students and their families with the highest level of customer service in the billing and collection of student accounts, campus-based loans, processing of payments, and disbursement of Financial Aid.
