Student Financial Services help students make the most of the options available. Financial Need is based on determining the educational cost (tuition & fees, room & board, books & supplies and a personal allowance) minus the Estimated Family Contribution (based on federal and institutional formulas). The result of these two factors determine the need for federal financial assistance. In fact, an average of 80% of Hofstra students qualify for some kind of financial aid. There are such kinds of Financial Aid:
- Private Loans
