Apply for Financial Aid

Our goal at Antonelli College is to ensure your financial aid experience is hassle-free. Upon acceptance to Antonelli College, we will schedule a one-on-one appointment with a dedicated financial aid professional. For most students, financial aid eligibility will be determined at this time.

Our philosophy is that no student should be unable to attend because of financial difficulties. The financial aid staff is committed to helping all students develop personalized financial plans for attending our college.

You may qualify for one of the following forms of financial aid:

    • Grants or scholarships: Aid that does not have to be repaid.
      • Some examples include:
        • Federal Pell Grants
        • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)
        • State of Ohio College Opportunity Grant (Cincinnati Campus Only)


      • Loans: Aid that must be repaid. Some loans do not require repayment until after the student has graduated or stopped attending college.
        • Some examples include:
          • Federal direct lending, including Perkins, subsidized or unsubsidized Stafford, and Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS)
          • Private student loans


          • Work/Study Programs: Jobs that may be arranged through the college’s placement office (i.e. career services).
            • Federal Work-Study (FWS)


          • Institutional Payment Plans: Interest-free, individualized payment plans provided by Antonelli College.
