Affording Your Education

We understand that higher education is an expensive endeavor and that navigating the financial aid process can be complicated. That’s why our Financial Aid staff works one-on-one with students and their families to create a financial aid package that makes sense.

With an open-door policy – no appointment required – we are here to provide guidance, to answer questions and to help complete any necessary paperwork. Helping undergraduates afford an education is, and always will be, our primary goal.

Contact the Office of Financial Aid at (315) 781-3315 or for assistance.

An HWS Education Is Worth It.
