Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial Aid

We value every student who applies and know everyone has different financial needs, which is why we assist all our students and families in researching financial aid, scholarship opportunities, and payment options.

Value of a Morehouse Education

There is a world of professions and universities to choose from, and today, black men have access to them all. But many of the best and brightest choose Morehouse. A Morehouse education opens doors in the professional world and allows you to grow financially and intellectually. Morehouse students join a brotherhood like none other.

Morehouse values every student that is admitted to the institution and we know each has different financial needs. Over 90 percent of our students finance their education with a combination of scholarships, loans, grants, and work-study. We work with ours students to understand their circumstances and find the type of financial assistance needed to attend Morehouse.

We are aware that a college education is a major investment in your future. The return on this investment will increase over your lifetime.

We provide you with an education that allows you to become a leader of men. From the beginning of your tenure, our financial aid advisors and staff will work with you to ensure our cost will not be an obstacle to your goal of achieving an undergraduate degree from Morehouse.

Applying for Aid

To apply for grants, loans, work-study and some scholarships you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The FAFSA is used to determine your eligibility for federal, state, and Morehouse aid programs. Even if you think you may not be eligible, we encourage you to apply. The open date for the FAFSA is October 1.

We encourage you to file your FAFSA online as soon as possible to avoid errors and to ensure faster processing. Morehouse’s priority deadline is February 15.

You may apply for aid before you receive your admission decision. However, you will not receive an award notification until you have been admitted into a degree-seeking program of study. To ensure Morehouse receives your FAFSA information, include Morehouse’s Federal School Code 001582 on your application.

Check out this CNBC article and video for great step-by-step guide to completing your FAFSA.
