Hollins, Virginia, and federal grants/loans

Financial aid is available from Hollins to students who can demonstrate that they require additional money to help pay for school. The amount you are eligible to receive is determined from information you provide on the government’s FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The application requires you to provide specific data about your family’s finances to the U.S. Department of Education. The priority deadline to complete the FAFSA is February 15. You’ll find an online application form at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Paper FAFSA forms are also available from Hollins.
