A college education is one of the best investments you can make in your future.

A college education represents a significant financial investment for most families.

East Stroudsburg University offers students a high quality education at an affordable cost.

There are a variety of financial aid opportunities designed to make your education even more affordable.

Grants, loans, scholarships and student employment are available.

More than 75% of ESU students receive some type of financial assistance.

Grants, loans, scholarships and work-study employment are based on a combination of factors including demonstrated financial need and academic performance.

There is no general application required for freshman scholarship consideration. All eligible students are automatically considered for scholarship opportunities.

Continuing students who are interested in applying for ESU scholarships, should check the Academic Scholarships By Department and Other ESU Scholarships.

Institutional Code of Conduct

The primary goal of the financial aid professional is to help students achieve their educational goals through financial support and resources. NASFAA members are required to exemplify the highest level of ethical behavior and demonstrate the highest level of professionalism. East Stroudsburg University is proud to be a part of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators. (NASFAA)


Your eligibility might be suspended if the offense occurred while you were receiving federal student aid (grants, loans, or work-study). When you complete the FAFSA, you will be asked whether you had a drug conviction for an offense that occurred while you were receiving federal student aid. If the answer is yes, you will be provided a worksheet to help you determine whether your conviction affects your eligibility for federal student aid.

If your eligibility for federal student aid has been suspended due to a drug conviction, you can regain eligibility early by successfully completing an approved drug rehabilitation program or by passing two unannounced drug tests administered by an approved drug rehabilitation program. If you regain eligibility during the award year, notify your financial aid office immediately so you can get any aid you’re eligible for.

If you are convicted of a drug-related offense after you submit the FAFSA, you might lose eligibility for federal student aid, and you might be liable for returning any financial aid you received during a period of ineligibility.

The Wellness Education & Prevention Office plans, coordinates, and supports prevention efforts that reduce dangerous drug and alcohol use and related negative consequences.
