Institutional scholarships are available only to full-time students. Entering students who wish to be considered for all types of financial aid, including federal and state programs and most institutional grants and scholarships should complete the following requirements no later than March 15 prior to their first Fall semester:

  1. Apply and be accepted for admission to Bethany College .
  2. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at The FAFSA is used by the Federal Student Aid Programs to determine a student’s financial “need”. The Bethany College Financial Aid Office uses this information to evaluate a student’s eligibility for other aid programs.

A student who qualifies for assistance will receive an award that may consist of scholarships, grants, loans, and work study. The student may accept or decline any of the aid that is offered. Questions should be directed to the Center for Enrollment. An extensive list of federal, state and institutional financial aid assistance may be viewed at
