Outside Scholarships and Tuition Benefits

If you receive a scholarship or tuition benefit from somewhere other than Vassar, your financial aid package will be adjusted based on the amount of outside aid received. You must report any outside scholarships and/or tuition benefits to Vassar.

We allow students to replace two of the three "self help" portions of their financial aid award with outside scholarships/tuition benefits.  Self-help aid includes the federal direct student loan, the work study allowance, and the standard student contribution from summer earnings. If the total amount of your outside award(s) exceeds the two self-help options, then the overage will reduce Vassar Scholarship.

Scholarship and tuition benefit checks should be sent to:
