The College-Institute maintains a significant program of financial aid for students who can demonstrate need. Since financial aid resources are finite, the College-Institute seeks first to disburse its available monies to those students who are experiencing the greatest financial constraint. As a general rule, students are expected to utilize all available personal resources before turning to HUC-JIR for assistance. Our institution remains committed to the principle that all admitted, qualified students will be able to matriculate regardless of their ability to pay tuition and fees, where institutional financial resources make this possible.
