Scholarships are payments to support your education that are awarded on the basis of academic or other achievements. They don’t have to be repaid, but they may require you to maintain a particular GPA or meet other qualifications. Park University offers a number of scholarships for freshmen, transfer, military and other kinds of students.


Loans are funds you borrow (from the government, a bank or other entity) to help pay for your education. Loans must be paid back within a set time frame and at a particular interest rate. Park University may include loan options as a part of your financial aid package.

Am I eligible? You may receive financial aid from Park if:

  1. You are a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or eligible non-citizen.
  2. You are enrolled a minimum of half-time each semester or term.
  3. You are making satisfactory academic progress according to Park University’s standards.

  5. You have a high school diploma/GED, or have completed secondary school in a home school setting.
  6. You are, if required, registered with Selective Service.

To receive other financial aid, you must meet the specific requirements for each type of aid.
