Financial aid at Mount Holyoke consists of grants, loans, and campus employment. Grant aid is based on financial need as determined by the College. Student loans, including Federal Direct Student Loans, Perkins and College loans, are awarded directly from the College. These loans have relatively low interest rates, and repayment begins six to nine months after graduation. The type and amount of a loan a student receives in her financial aid package are based on her need, years in school, and the availability of financial funds.
Campus employment, which may be part of the financial aid award, usually involves eight to ten hours of work weekly. Students may find their own jobs.
