Financial Aid

Mission

Shawn Guy, Interim Director of Financial Aid | sguy@bennett.edu | (336) 517-2209

The Office of Financial Aid at Bennett College is a provider of a variety of financial opportunities. We are comprised of a small team of dedicated professionals committed to servicing students by providing access to the necessary resources for degree completion. Our mission is to help students meet their educational goals and financial obligations to the college. We provide quality customer service in delivering federal, state, institutional, and private sources of financial aid.

In pursuing our mission, we strive to uphold the highest degree of confidentiality and integrity while embracing emerging technologies. We use the simplest procedures consistent with fiscal responsibility, governmental and institutional regulations. We offer personal attention to students by counseling during regular office hours, by e-mail or by telephone. We are sensitive to individual student needs, and are effective at helping to bridge the gap between family resources and educational expenses.

The aid provided by Bennett College is intended to supplement, not replace family resources. The primary source of funding rests with both Federal and State government; therefore, regulations often determine a student's eligibility and awards. We work collaboratively with all areas of the college in an effort to achieve our common goal to enhance enrollment, retention, and the academic success of our students. The Office of Financial Aid is one of three units within the area of Enrollment Management at Bennett College.

Grants
Grants are classified as “free money” or forms of financial assistance that do not have to be repaid. Grants are often based upon funding availability, financial need, merit and academic progress. Federal and state grants are the two types of grant opportunities.

Scholarships
Scholarships are also classified as “free money” or forms of financial assistance that do not have to be repaid. Scholarships are often based upon criteria set by the donor, unmet need, merit, and funding availability. Scholarship Inquiries for new students should be directed to the Office of Admission and inquiries for continuing students should be directed to the Office of Financial Aid.
