I am receiving great financial aid in the form of grants--however, they are very bad about providing the necessary loans to cover tuition.

I got pretty good financial aid. Almost as good as I would have got from UMASS, as an instate student.

A few scholarships available for academic achievement. Financial aid is better than many of the other schools that are on the same level as Mount Holyoke.

Greatly Improved – Honestly, this is one of the most expensive colleges in the country. Even though my financial aid packet covered half my tuition, it still isn't enough. And they DON'T change your financial aid as the years go by. I know multiple people, including myself, whose income has gone down due to multiple problems. No matter how many times you call or go down to the office to talk to them, they do not care. They keep pushing for you to take the semester off and get a job to save money, which honestly is not a option for many of us. If you are an international student, you have a better chance at getting more money because they pride themselves on having a "diversity of students" and "international community". Domestic students-we are left out of the financial aid decisions.

Lost in the Shuffle – I am not from a family below the poverty level, but I am from a family that certainly cannot afford MHC, but MHC has given me zero help. Zero. They see my family's financial situation and I suppose they don't view me as worthy even though I have an amazing GPA. I am still able to go thanks to loans but they have completely failed me and my family in this way. I feel betrayed and utterly forgotten by Student Financial Services here. If you don't initially receive aid, approach MHC with caution. It's a great school but seriously, a lot of people get entirely lost in the shuffle, and the department is surprisingly cold about it. Sad.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
