We understand the financial sacrifices and commitment you and your family make when you decide to attend college. Thus we make every effort to keep the Harding experience affordable for everyone.

Each year, the University awards more than $22 million in institutional scholarships and grants and nearly $9 million in federal and state scholarships and grants. We offer several forms of assistance, including grants, loans, scholarships and campus employment — depending on your individual financial need. With your personal initiative and the assistance of our knowledgeable financial aid staff, you can finance and achieve your educational goals at Harding.

Our financial aid website provides valuable resources, including a list of scholarships and grants, links to federal loan programs, and information and qualifications for federal work-study and University work programs.
