Welcome to Financial Aid!

Did you know that more than 97% of students at Hardin-Simmons University receive some type of financial aid? That means chances are good that you’re eligible, too. That’s why it’s important to apply for aid using the​  Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) for students that  are classified as a Texas Resident who cannot apply for federal financial aid.
