Here are the types of aid that are available through St. Norbert College.
Scholarships are based on academic achievement and don’t have to be repaid. Because they are merit-based, they are available to every student who qualifies for them – regardless of financial need. The academic merit scholarships we offer range from $5,500 to $14,000 per year.
In addition to scholarships offered by St. Norbert College, there are many outside scholarships available to students.

Grants are funds that don’t have to be repaid either. In most cases, you need to demonstrate financial need to receive a grant. Grant eligibility is determined by information provided by your FAFSA and can be funded by federal and state governments, as well as by St. Norbert College.
An educational loan is a form of financial aid that must be repaid, with interest. Educational loans come in three major categories:
- Federal student loans (i.e., Stafford and Perkins loans)
- Federal parent PLUS loans
- Private student loans (offered though a private lender)
Campus employment offers you an opportunity to work on campus and contribute to your educational expenses. A wide variety of positions in campus professional settings that align with your career aspirations are available.
International students are permitted to work on campus in accordance with their student visa.
