Bacoats HallWelcome to the Office of Student Financial Aid of Benedict College. We recognize that a college education is a significant financial undertaking, and we want to assist you in finding the right combination of resources to enable you to study at Benedict. Our Financial Aid Office is well staffed and provides expert advice to students and parents or guardians on the best way of financing the entire four-year program at Benedict. The college also maintains a Student Financial Counseling Service that offers advice on budgeting and loan management. The Financial Aid Office is located in Bacoats Hall. We welcome consultations with students and parents.

Financial aid consists of two basic types: institutional aid and government aid. To be eligible for any type of institutional aid, a student must be enrolled for at least 12 semester hours of credit. (Some federal aid is available to those registered for less than a full load.) Institutional aid is limited to a maximum of 128 hours of graduation-credit work attempted; developmental courses give institutional (non-graduation) credit only and may be covered on a one-time basis, as well.

In government-funded student aid programs, adjustments will be made to comply with any new regulations.

To apply for financial aid, a student must complete the following as soon after January 1 as possible:

After receiving notice of an award, the student should contact the Benedict's Financial Aid Office. If more assistance is needed, there might be other possibilities.

South Carolina Tax Credit

South Carolina Tax Credit - To help ease the financial burden for South Carolina college students and their families, the South Carolina General Assembly has created an income tax credit for tuition paid to South Carolina colleges and universities. To claim the credit, a Form SC 1040 must be filed. When preparing the South Carolina income tax return, Form I-319 Tuition Tax Credit must be completed. This form is included with all state individual income tax booklets. For more information about the tax credit, please visit the South Carolina Tuition Tax Credit website.
