Making Your Education Affordable
Thanks to scholarships, grants, loans and work-study, there are many ways to make your Claflin education affordable. Our financial aid staff will work closely with you to explore all of the funding resources available. Our goal is to ensure that every student receives our best comprehensive offer of financial assistance and that your affordable investment in a Claflin education becomes a reality.
So where do you begin?
The first step is to apply to Claflin. The other extremely important step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, after January 1 of your senior year in high school. Even if you think you don't qualify for federal aid, it's important to apply because other funding sources insist on it, including scholarships, state aid, student loans and work study. So complete that FAFSA! Other important sources of help include our Claflin scholarships, outside scholarships and federal work-study. It's all itemized in our handy checklist. We've also provided calculators so you can quickly get a rough snapshot of your options.
Finding out how affordable an undergraduate education at Claflin University can be is as easy as 1-2-3. Claflin is pleased to provide you the online Net Price Calculator to assist you with calculating your “estimated” educational cost, and your estimated scholarship and aid package. Click the Net Price Calculator button on the right to estimate your total cost. Please be advised that the calculator is for estimating purposes only. Final eligibility for aid is subject to student completing the FAFSA, meeting eligibility requirements and availability of funds.
The goal of the Office of Veterans Affairs at Claflin University is to assist veterans in pursuing their educational, vocational or professional objectives. The Office Student Financial Aid serves as a liaison between enrolled veterans, dependents of veteran students and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Our goal is to better serve our veterans and to offer availability, accuracy, and excellent service in relation to veteran educational benefits, certifying enrollments for the Department of Veterans Affairs, and monitoring students’ degree plans and academic progress.
