An excellent college education is a big investment in your future. Paying for it can seem daunting, but rest assured there are many options available to help you meet the costs of a Hofstra education. In fact, 97% of our full-time first-year students in the fall of 2023 were awarded financial aid, including grants (free money). That means it's likely that you will receive financial aid, too.

Student Financial Services is here to help you make the most of the options available. This area of our website will take you through the step-by-step process of financial aid. And remember, if you get stuck anywhere along the way, we'd like you to reach out to us. We're here to help you!
