The following funding options are available to enable many families to ensure affordability:

  • Federal Stafford Loans are fixed-rate, low-interest loans available to students.  The principal can be deferred until graduation from the College with extended repayment periods.

  • The TMS Payment Plan provides families with an interest-free monthly payment plan whereby all or part of the Franklin & Marshall charges are divided into monthly installments.  Monthly payments normally begin in June and continue for 10 months.

  • Federal PLUS Loans are fixed-rate parental loans with extended repayment terms and principal deferment options.

  • Private Alternative Loans offer variable rate student loans through private lenders.  These loans require meeting the credit criteria of the lender and typically require a co-signer.

  • Additional grant dollars may be available to supplement a student's financial aid package when a family's economic circumstances have changed. The College applies a consistent awarding methodology and requires additional documentation from families requesting supplemental aid.

  • Campus employment presents an opportunity for students to work up to ten hours per week and contribute to their spending money and miscellaneous expenses.
