Affordability and financial aid

Making college more affordable through financial aid

Spalding is among the most affordable private institutions in the state of Kentucky. Each year, we award more than $4 million in scholarships, grants, financial aid. Spalding offers need-based and academic institutional aid and scholarships, federal work-study, and graduate assistantships. Over 90 percent of all Spalding students receive financial support (99 percent for our first-time, full-time students).

Steps for applying for financial aid

  1. Apply to Spalding. See how to apply.
  2. File your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) beginning October 1. Visit to complete the online application. Spalding’s school code is 001960.

Why is FAFSA important?

Federal student loans can provide additional assistance to our students.  The Free Application for Federal Student Aid helps determine your eligibility for federal financial aid, such as low-cost loans, grants, and work-study opportunities. It is also used to determine your eligibility for institutional aid,  need-based scholarships as well as state scholarships and grants. It’s important that you file your FAFSA early as many grants and scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
