Welcome To Hodges University Summer 2012 It is every studentâ€™s responsibility to determine a manner in which to pay for his or her tuition. The Financial Aid Department can assist students in understanding the available federal and state loans and grants; however, scholarship applications should be an important part of the financial solution. Scholarships can reduce debt. The Hodges University Scholarship Committee offers scholarship workshops to assist students with scholarship process. These workshops provide valuable information and great tips on how to get scholarships. Best of all, these workshops are FREE! In addition to federal loans, you may be eligible for alternative/private loans. Several lending institutions and nonprofit organizations offer long term, low interest educational loans to students. You may also obtain loan, grant, or scholarship funds through state and independent sources. The Financial Aid Office is available to advise students. For personal advisement concerning the scholarship process, contact the Office of Student Development.
