Financial Aid Information

If you are an on-campus student, meaning that you have taken classes on one of Gordon-Conwell's four campuses, any financial aid you have will also apply to your Semlink+ courses.  Please contact the Financial Aid office (finaidinfo@gordonconwell.edu) if you have any questions about how particular scholarship stipulations might work with Semlink+ courses.

Gordon-Conwell does not offer institutional grants or scholarship aid for Semlink+ students who have not yet taken courses on campus. However, students taking at least two off-campus Semlink+ courses registered within the same semester are eligible to apply for Financial Aid in the form of a Federal Stafford loan for an amount up to the cost of the tuition only. (This does not apply to International Students.) Only students who are seeking a degree through Gordon-Conwell are eligible for applying for Federal Stafford loans. Visiting and Special Students are not able to apply for Federal Stafford loans through GCTS. For the two-step instructions on applying for Financial Aid, please visit our Apply for Financial Aid page.
