Financial Aid at Donnelly

Paying for College

Making your college dream a reality means making a financial investment in yourself and in your future. Our philosophy at Donnelly College is to ensure you make the most of every opportunity — scholarships, grants and loans if necessary. We’ll help you find the right resources for your situation.



Every student is required to meet with the Financial Aid department in order to receive an award letter outlining your financial aid eligibility.


At Donnelly, we offer comprehensive financial aid award packages. These may include Federal funding, State funding, and Institutional Aid funding. Institutional Aid funding may include Merit and Need-Based Scholarships as well as other external funding opportunities. We are here to find the right financial aid package for you! Please contact us at to ask questions or schedule an appointment.

Student aid funding is applied in the following order toward your balance due, as applicable:

  1. Federal Funding
  2. State Funding
  3. External Scholarships (this funding is applied before Donnelly Scholarships if student has eligibility)
  4. Donnelly Scholarships (including Merit & Institutional Aid)
