Paying for College

For help paying for college, King’s students combine several resources.

Scholarships
Institutional Scholarships

Through the merit-based Presidential Scholarship, calculated based on test scores and GPA, you can receive up to $23,000 per year. Through the Founders Scholarship, our speech and essay competition, we also offer four full-tuition scholarships that amount to $37,000 in gift aid each year.

 

Outside Scholarships

If you receive a scholarship from a church or ministry, King’s will match it up to $1,500. You can also claim a $2,500 tax credit each year if your family’s AGI is below $160,000. We can also recommend resources to help you find even more outside scholarships and we’ll never reduce your aid because you’ve earned other scholarships.

Grants
The King’s Grant

You should complete a FAFSA each year to find out if you’re eligible for The King’s Grant, gift aid from The King’s College that is calculated based on need.

 

Federal and State Grants

Through the Federal Pell Grant and the Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant, you may be eligible for up to $7,095 per year. Additionally, New York State residents can access up $6,000 more through the Tuition Assistance Program and the Enhanced Tuition Award.

Payment Plans

If your family is able to budget something each month towards your college education, you can enroll in an interest-free payment plan that spreads out your semester bill over 4, 5, or 6 months. This approach can help you minimize your loans.

Part-Time Work

Working part-time during the semester can easily cover your indirect expenses like books, transportation, and food. You should also consider working full-time in the summers. In New York City, the minimum wage is $15 an hour.

Loans
Federal Loans

Through the Direct Stafford Loan Program, students can take out loans in their name, no credit check required. Parents can also apply for the Direct Parent PLUS Loan and may borrow up to the rest of your direct expense balance plus indirect expenses. If this loan is denied, the student may borrow an additional $4,000.

 

Private Loans

Once you’ve pursued each of these options, you can consider using private loans to finance the rest. A loan comparison tool like Elm Select can help you evaluate different loans. Students or parents may take out a private loan, but if you are a student, you will need a cosigner with good credit.
