All of Blue Cliff College’s campuses in Louisiana and Mississippi participate in several of the most trusted Federal Financial Aid Programs, including:
Federal Pell Grants – Pell Grants are federally-funded grants that are awarded to those who qualify. Students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form and submit the application to the Financial Aid Office at the College in order to apply.

No interest is charged while the student is in school for at least half of the time. Direct unsubsidized loans are not based on financial need and interest is charged during all periods. The FAFSA is required to apply for the direct loan programs at Blue Cliff College.
