Financial Aid

Hartwick has a strong financial aid program, which helps bring the cost within reach for most students. Applicants who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply for financial aid in the forms of these Hartwick grants, federal or state grants, loans, and work-study programs. Applicants for a second undergraduate degree are not eligible for financial aid. Financial aid is awarded on the basis of need, but is dependent on the availability of funds. If all necessary materials for the financial aid application have been submitted, an accepted student who has applied for financial assistance will receive the financial aid package shortly after the admissions decision letter. A student applying for financial aid should complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Note that our FAFSA code is 002729.

It is strongly suggested that students submit their FAFSA as early as possible. The financial aid deadlines are:

  • Fall Term—August 1
  • Spring Term—January 1
