Cost & Financial Aid
Text questions to: 860-910-1052
Mitchell College is deeply committed to helping students afford their education. Each year the College awards millions of dollars in financial aid to eligible students. These students receive aid in the form of scholarships, grants, work-study, and loans to make their educational dreams a reality.
All first-time student scholarships are awarded at the time of admission based on a holistic review of the student’s application, which include accomplishments in an outside the classroom and on the high school transcript. Merit aid notification is included in the student’s acceptance letter. There is no separate application process.
Financial Aid Application (FAFSA)
First time students to Mitchell College, who are interested in obtaining need based aid, either from federal and state resources or Mitchell College’s own funds must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Many types of financial aid are awarded on a first-come/first-served basis. Some types of aid are limited in funding, so apply as soon as possible after October 1.
Apply by April 1 for priority consideration for the fall semester and November 1 for priority consideration for the spring semester. Because admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis, aid is offered until funds are exhausted after these dates.
Add Mitchell College’s school code – 001393 – on the FAFSA form and your data will be sent to the College by the FAFSA processor. It is important to be as accurate as possible when completing the FAFSA form. We recommend using the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to add your tax information to the FAFSA. You will be prompted to use the DRT while in the student & parent financial sections of the FAFSA.
*Note: College Goal Sunday (Connecticut is a non-profit organization that hosts free FAFSA assistance in Connecticut, or you may search for College Goal Sunday in your resident state.
