Financial Aid & Scholarship Programs

The Coker College Financial Aid Office helps students and parents in financial planning for college. We award more than $9 million annually in scholarships and grants in addition to federal and state aid. We want you to be able to afford to grow and learn, so Coker offers access to a variety of federal, state and local programs.

More than 95% of Coker's students receive financial aid, so we know how to help.
