Financial Aid


It is the mission of the Excelsior Community College Financial Aid Department to aid students and prospective students in their understanding, application, and timely receipt of all eligible financial aid resources they need to reduce the significant barriers the costs of higher education present. Our philosophy is that everyone is deserving of an education and we support this entitlement through education, compassion and respect. A few things you should know:
  • You must apply for financial aid each academic year.

  • You must be matriculated (formally accepted) into a financial aid eligible program.

  • ALL matriculated students may be eligible for some type of financial aid.


The college provides student aid in the form of its part payment scheme, scholarships and work positions. 

In addition to the financial aid provided by the College, prospective students can also seek financial aid from the following sources:

For further information on the above programmes, students should contact Ms.Carol Finch, Student Financial Aid Officer located at Main Campus.

Students who make applications for any of the above schemes must present a letter of commitment from the relevant agency to the Student Affairs Office during the pre-registration process.
