Need-based Sources of Financial Assistance
Sattler College Grant
This award is made from College resources to individuals who would have difficulty meeting their educational expenses without grant assistance, and who have demonstrated financial need. Amounts vary depending on need and availability of funds. Students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress, and full-time enrollment (12 credits minimum) to receive Sattler College Grant funds.
Student Employment is awarded to many students who demonstrate financial need. As part of a financial aid package, a student may be awarded a specific dollar amount in Student Employment. This amount is the maximum that may be earned in the academic year. The average student employment award is $3,000 per year, which enables a student to work 20 hours each week that classes are in session. Unlike scholarships, grants, and loans, which are credited directly to the student's account, student employment is not.
Upon arriving on campus, a student with an award in Student Employment begins looking for a job by consulting the job board online and applying directly to appropriate hiring manager. Hourly wage is based on position and length of employment. Students are paid on the 15th and 30th of each month by direct deposit into the student's checking account.
There are a limited number of jobs available on campus to students who have not been awarded Student Employment as part of a financial aid award. Preference in hiring, however, is given to students with Student Employment awards. Interested students should check with Human Resources staff for details. An award of student employment indicates eligibility to apply for a campus job, but is not in itself a guarantee of employment.
International Student Scholarships
A limited number of scholarships are available to International Students. The maximum is $20,000 per year.
