Financial Aid Mission

“The Mission of the Office of Financial Aid at American Baptist College is to assist current and prospective students through the financial aid process by providing guidance with completing the FAFSA and information about federal, state and institutional scholarships, grants, loans and work study programs to help remove any financial barriers.  The goal is to engage our students in financial literacy through excellence in customer service while maintaining compliance with federal, state and institutional policies and procedures.”

Help Is Available

The Office of Student Financial Aid at American Baptist College can provide you with information about federal, state, and institutional loans, grants, scholarships, and work study programs. Our office encourages all current or prospective students to explore their financial options at American Baptist College. While it’s true that parents and/or students must assume the primary responsibility of financing a college education, for those, however, who are unable to meet the entire cost and who possess demonstrated need, we encourage them to apply for assistance through the Financial Aid Office. If you have any questions or concerns about financial aid, we encourage you to contact the Financial Aid Office located in the Griggs Building.
