Financial Support for Your Entire Simpson Journey

The Simpson $100K Promise and 99 County Full-Tuition Programs incorporate your federal and state financial aid with Simpson scholarship funds to cover full tuition for your first year.

You will continue to receive (at minimum) the same dollar amount of Simpson scholarships and grants for your entire time at Simpson - provided you remain in good academic standing, enroll full-time in the traditional day program, live on campus and complete your FAFSA by July 1st annually. Your eligibility for federal and state aid is based upon your FAFSA application each year.

Should there be tuition and fee, room and meal plan increases in subsequent years, you will be responsible for the amount of these increases. On-campus residency and participation in a College food plan will also be required each year.
