There are several forms of financial assistance and scholarship opportunities available for Mass Communication majors. There are tuition and partial tuition waivers available for positions on the student newspaper. Additionally, some of the internships which majors take are paid.
Other types of financial assistance include grants, loans and part-time employment on campus and off. Approximately 80 percent of FMU students receive some form of financial aid. A financial aid problem should not deter students from submitting an application for admission. The university makes every effort, within limits of available resources, to encourage and assist students in securing an education. For more information or to obtain financial aid forms, contact the FMU Office of Financial Assistance, phone 843-661-1190.
