Financial Aid

The purpose of the Financial Aid Office is to assist students and families in understanding the financial aid process and to help them find ways to fund their education at PHC. We are committed to working with students and families to help make one of the nation’s finest classical Christian liberal arts educations affordable. Bill Kellaris, the Director of Financial Aid, oversees the College’s financial aid program. He works with prospective and current students and their families to provide counsel concerning the financial aid process, including eligibility requirements for academic, merit, endowed and need-based scholarships. The College awards nearly $3,000,000 in financial assistance annually to help qualified students attend PHC. 

You may contact the Office of Financial Aid (888) 338-1776 (toll free) or (540) 441-8142 or by email at FinancialAid@phc.edu.

If you're interested in finding out more about PHC's scholarship programs, we can help you determine your eligibility and guide you through the application process. And if PHC's financial aid offerings don't meet your full need, we can provide information on how to find private funds.

Financial Aid Principles

As a matter of institutional conviction, Patrick Henry College operates on the basis of two guiding financial principles: first, the College is committed to operating without long-term debt, adding new facilities and programs only as funds are raised; second, the College is governed by its Board of Trustees according to its Fundamental Statements and will not accept any funding, private or governmental, which includes terms that supersede the Board’s authority or conflict with these Fundamental Statements.

In order to safeguard our distinctly Christian worldview, we do not accept or participate in government funding. We believe such financial independence is a critical component of a Patrick Henry College education. As a result, the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) federal grant and loan programs, ROTC funds, G.I. Bill funds, and State funds are not available to PHC students and their families. However, we are confident that our wide range of financial aid options can help bring one of the nation's finest classical Christian liberal arts educations within the reach of students from many financial backgrounds.

Because the College is recognized by the USDE as an eligible institution, PHC families may take advantage of the benefits built into the federal tax code – including education savings incentives (529 Plans), tax deductions, and tax credits. To take advantage of these benefits, please be sure to use our OPE ID number 039513-00. For further information, please refer to the IRS Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Education.


Financial Aid Eligibility

To be eligible for financial aid, a student must be admitted to the College as a degree-seeking student. Financial aid is available on a pro-rated basis for part-time degree-seeking students as long as the student is registered for six or more credits in the Fall and Spring semesters or three or more credits in the Summer term. As a condition of receiving financial aid, students agree that the College may publicize the individual successes achieved by students to promote the College to potential students and donors. PHC refrains from such promotion if it would jeopardize in any way a student's career opportunities, such as those in national security or related fields. Financial aid is awarded in the form of academic, merit, endowed, and need-based scholarships.
