Help Paying for College

Opportunity Made Limitless

Every year, we award financial aid and scholarships to both new and continuing Sinclair students. In fact, last year alone, our students received more than $57 million to assist with tuition and other college expenses.

Going Further

Did you know there might be free (yes, free!) money with your name on it to help you go further at Sinclair? The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) offers grants for eligible students, as well as low-cost options like subsidized and unsubsidized federally funded loans based on the student's financial situation.
