Endicott’s Financial Assistance Programs
Endicott College will make every effort to ensure that a quality education is available to all qualified students, regardless of income level. Financial Aid officers are available to help students and their families on an individual basis with all Financial Aid and financial planning issues.
Financial assistance is available for eligible students through both Endicott and federal and state programs. These programs allow students to use gift and self-help funds to pay for their education. Approximately 81% of Endicott’s students receive some form of financial aid. The average student indebtedness upon graduation is $16,243, from federal and institutional sources. Individual student debt may be higher if private loan sources are utilized.
To qualify for financial aid, a student must be a United States citizen or eligible non-citizen, be enrolled in an approved program, and be in good academic standing. Most of the aid programs require that a student demonstrate financial need. The family contribution is determined by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Financial need is defined as the difference between the cost of education and the amount the student’s family can be expected to contribute.
Every applicant’s financial situation is evaluated carefully so that each financial aid award will accommodate a student’s particular needs. All students must reapply for financial aid each year and must maintain satisfactory academic progress to remain eligible.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)
These grants are also based upon financial need and are awarded by the Endicott College Financial Aid Office. Priority is given to Pell Grant recipients.

The amount of a Work-Study award is determined by the Endicott College Financial Aid Office and does not appear as a credit on a student’s bill. Placement is not guaranteed.
Federal Perkins Loans
Long-term, low interest (5%) federal loans awarded and administered by Endicott. The average award for the 2009-2010 academic year will be $1,000. This loan must be repaid, but there are no interest or principal repayments on a Federal Perkins Loan for borrowers until nine months after a borrower ceases to be at least a half-time student. Upon taking this loan, a student is advised of his or her rights and responsibilities regarding payment.
Federal Subsidized Stafford Loan
Annually provides federally insured funds of up to $3,500 for first year students, up to $4,500 for second year students, and up to $5,500 for third and fourth year students. Graduate students may borrow up to $8,500. These loans are based upon financial need and are borrowed through the student’s choice of lender. The rate for a subsidized loan for undergraduate students will be fixed at 5.6% for loans dispersed between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010. The rate for graduate student borrowers will be 6.8%.
Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
A loan program with the same annual loan limits as the Subsidized Stafford loan but it is available to students regardless of financial need. The rate will be fixed at 6.8% for loans dispersed between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010. Under this program, interest is the responsibility of the student while in attendance and for deferral periods. As a result of legislation passed in May 2008, all undergraduate students are eligible to borrow up to $2,000 in an Unsubsidized Stafford Loan in addition to the annual loan limits listed above.
Federal Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS Loans)
Loan funds are available to credit-worthy parents of dependent students. This program is sponsored by the federal government and administered by local banks. These loans are not based upon financial need and parents may borrow up to the cost of attendance minus financial aid annually for each dependent student enrolled in an undergraduate school. The interest rate is fixed at 8.5% and repayment for new PLUS loans generally begins after the student is no longer enrolled.
Other Sources of Aid
State Financial Aid Programs
A state scholarship or grant is available from a number of state programs. Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont awarded funds that were used at Endicott. Eligible Massachusetts residents received grants of up to $2,400 for their educational expenses.

Over and above Army and Air Force ROTC’s contribution, Endicott makes a commitment to assist participants with additional funding not to exceed the direct cost of attendance. Endicott’s potential contribution, therefore, could include 1) $5,000 awarded to ROTC participants receiving scholarships, and 2) up to an additional $6,000 for students enrolled in the School of Nursing.
