  • Our office is in the midst of peak processing (renewal awarding and adding PLUS loans/private loans/SPARK grants). We appreciate your patience as we prepare your awards for 2022-23. Keep an eye on MyFinAid@Naz for your latest financial aid package for 2022-23.
  • Office Hours starting 8/22: M-F 8:30-4:30
  • Communication: If you need assistance please email our office or leave a voice message at 585-389-2310. Both are monitored M-F during business hours.
  • Loan processing reminder: Please allow 10 business days for Plus loan and private loan processing. Students will receive an email from our office when the loans have been added.

In 2021-22, all of our first-year students received financial assistance. More than $34 million in Nazareth College grant/scholarship assistance has been awarded in the current academic year.

Nazareth's graduates learn about managing their loans and land jobs that enable repaying loans. While the average student loan default rate is 7.3%, and private four-year institutions average 5.2%, only 2.0% of Nazareth's graduates fall into that category, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Education.
