Student Financial Assistance

Philosophy and Promise

Holy Names University's financial aid philosophy is to provide federal, state, and institutional funding to make obtaining a college degree as affordable as possible. We aim to help students learn and grow academically and personally through affordable access and financial learning experiences. Our financial aid promise is to provide easily accessible official aid information as soon and as possible, and to provide estimations or easily accessed tools to estimate aid when we can’t. Official and guaranteed aid information will be provided when we have the necessary information, but we will provide an NPC and other calculators to give reasonably accurate aid information for students to assist in enrollment decisions and as useful information for four year financial planning.

Holy Names University is committed to your success, and we put money behind our commitment. In fact, almost 100% of our traditional students receive a scholarship from us that recognizes their unique talents and potential for success – it’s what we call the HNU Financial Aid Experience.

  • Over 95% of our students receive some form of financial aid. We offer a variety of grants and scholarships from HNU based on academic merit, financial need, and special talents such as music and athletics. However HNU institutional aid is only the beginning and all families are encouraged to file the FAFSA to apply for state and federal financial assistance. The application is free.

    The FAFSA is used to apply for:

    1. State and Federal Grants (funds that do not have to be repaid)
    2. Low-interest loans
    3. Federal Work Study
  • Adult Degree Students [ get details see more or less ]
  • In some cases, students may qualify for HNU Grants (funds that do not have to be repaid) to assist with the cost of tuition.

Students should also check with their employers to determine if they have a tuition reimbursement plan.
