Before ruling out any college or university, do a little research on the types of scholarships and financial aid offered at the institutions you are considering. Private colleges offer a wide array of scholarships based on academics, interests, leadership and talent. Maryville College scholarships range from $19,000 per year up to full tuition. In addition to scholarships based on outstanding academic achievement and personal achievement, MC offers scholarships that reward leadership skills as well as excellence in music, art or theatre.

If a smaller, private college seems to be the right fit, look past the sticker price and apply because there are many opportunities to reduce the cost of attendance. And, after all scholarships and financial aid are awarded, small, private colleges are often just as affordable as large, public institutions.

Don’t rule out a school you are interested in based on price alone. Go through the admission and financial aid process at each institution, and compare all of the financial aid packages offered side by side. That way, when it comes time to make a final decision, you’ll have all of the details you need to make an informed decision.

Federal Grant Aid programs, Federal Education Loan programs (such as Direct Loans, Parent PLUS Loans ) and Federal Work-Study are additional sources of available federal aid. Filing a FAFSA is required to be considered for these federal programs.

Tennessee residents may qualify for the Tennessee HOPE Scholarship Program and/or the need-based Tennessee Student Assistance Award (TSAA).  Students must file the FAFSA in order to be considered for these awards as well.
