Explore Financial Aid

Almost all STLCOP students receive financial aid. 

  • Scholarships are gift aid and do not have to be repaid. Several scholarships are available such as merit- and need-based scholarships, endowed scholarships and external scholarships funded by local, regional and national foundations and organizations.
  • Grants are based on a student’s financial need and do not require repayment. The federal government is the largest source of need-based grants. Other sources include the State of Missouri and the College.
  • Student loans are available to students and parents who wish to borrow money to help meet educational expenses. Students are eligible for several loan programs.
  • Institutional aid is awarded based on an evaluation of academic achievement, financial need, community service, extracurricular involvement and leadership experience. Some scholarships require a minimum GPA.
  • Non-institutional aid is available through a variety of federal and state aid programs. Completion of the FAFSA or other applications may be required. 

Deferred payment plans are available for students who would prefer to make monthly payments instead of a lump sum. No interest is charged, but there is a nominal payment fee.

Our Office of Financial Aid will provide one-on-one counseling to help you make a plan to finance your education.
