Indiana State Financial Aid Awards Have Been Increased by Up to $2000

Indiana State Financial Aid Awards Have Been Increased by Up to $2000

For the past few months, Holy Cross College has been notifying incoming financial-aid eligible Indiana-resident students that their estimated contribution from the state would be approximately $5,000. This figure was intentionally based on a very conservative estimate because the state had not officially released its award maximum for the 2010-11 academic year.

The college is very pleased to announce that the state's final award maximum figure released the week of June 1st will be $7,056 for students attending independent colleges.

This means that Holy Cross College students who are eligible for the full SSACI grant could receive up to $2,000 more than previously announced to help them budget for the coming academic year.

The State Student Assistance Commission of Indiana's (SSACI) mission is to make college affordable through need-based grants and to allow choice by granting awards to those attending public, independent & proprietary colleges.

Holy Cross College remains the most affordable four-year, residential independent college in Indiana, and among the most affordable institutions of its kind in the United States. With our exclusive tuition lock program that guarantees an individual's tuition will not be increased while they are enrolled fulltime, families can budget for their student's entire four-year college career.
