Financial Aid

Students at Galen College of Nursing may be eligible for a wide range of funding to help pay for nursing degree programs, including Title IV funding programs provided by the United States Department of Education. Additionally, some students may be eligible for nursing student loans and grants for nursing school.

As part of the enrollment process, each nursing student will receive the information necessary to process their nursing school financial aid application. This information will usually be delivered via email.

Once financial aid applications and all required documentation is processed, Galen will determine eligibility for financial aid.

After you have reviewed your award letter, you will meet with an enrollment specialist to sign an Enrollment Agreement, which secures your enrollment.

Please note this calculator is for estimating only – to assist in the early stages of financial planning. Students’ actual award packages will vary, depending on time of year, regulatory changes, and availability of funds.
