Paying for College

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

Institutional Scholarships

The King’s College offers three tiers of merit-based scholarships. Through the Founders Scholarship, our speech and essay competition, we also offer up to three full-tuition scholarships that amount to the full price of tuition 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.

Federal and State Grants

Payment Plans

You have the option to pay in full or enroll in an interest-free monthly payment plan.

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.

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.
