Understanding the Financial Aid Award

Financial aid funding is limited and must be distributed in an equitable and consistent manner.

Once financial need has been established, a financial aid award package is constructed following a step-wise approach until financial need is met.

The priority order is:

  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
  • Federal TEACH Grant
  • Loan - Federal Stafford, Federal Perkins, or Connecticut College
  • Federal Work Study
  • State Grants
  • Connecticut College Grant
