Congratulations on your admittance to Hampton University, our
home by the sea. Nothing is more important to a great future than a great education.
The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships makes it our mission to “put
students first” and to work diligently to provide you with the best possible
financial package for college within applicable guidelines and annual appropriations.
Our counseling staff takes pride in working one-on-one with you and your family
throughout your college years. Additional resources and information can be obtained
Undergraduate Financial Aid: Parent's Guide.
Please be aware that the vast majority of communication from this office is
conducted by email to your personal email account until the start of the semester.
At that time, all email correspondence will be sent to your myhamptonu.edu account.
The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships participates in a wide range of federal
and state aid programs. We make every effort to assist all degree-seeking students with
a combination of need-based grants, scholarships, loans and student employment, for
those who qualify.
About 80 percent of Hampton University students receive some form
of financial assistance. To make sure you receive the best possible financial aid
award, we ask that you remember the following:
- To complete the Free Application for Federal Student
Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after January 1st.
- To apply and submit the FAFSA electronically at
www.fafsa.ed.gov. We encourage all of our students
to apply no later than February 15th. Our priority
processing date is February 15th. In order to meet
this priority processing date, we must have a valid expected
family contribution (EFC) on file. Due to limited federal
funds, we make no guarantees or assurances that students
with the lowest possible EFC (Pell-eligible) will receive
additional aid. All financial aid applications received
after the February 15th deadline, will be processed in
order by date received.
- To be eligible to receive federal student financial aid,
you must meet and maintain the standards of
satisfactory academic progress policy toward a degree
as defined by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
- If applicable, you must satisfy all outstanding
requirements affecting eligibility.
Our goal for the upcoming academic year is to make financial aid award(s) available on-line
for all on-time and eligible current students, with no outstanding requirements, by July 15th.
To help us accomplish our goal, please respond promptly to all correspondence and/or telephone
call(s) from our office concerning your financial aid status. If you do not see your
financial aid award on-line by July 15th, and you have NO outstanding requirements, please
contact us at 1-800-624-3341 or by email using our Contact Us tab in the menu to the left.
For your convenience, our office hours are: Monday – Friday:
9am - 12pm & 1pm - 5pm.
Our experienced counselors are eager to work with you individually to answer your questions
about financial aid. We want to make the financial aid process as efficient as possible!
