The Office of Student Financial Aid’s mission is to provide Eastern Arizona College
(EAC) student’s, prospective, current, and past, with prompt, accurate and courteous
financial aid assistance.
To help students meet the financial obligations of college attendance, Eastern Arizona
College administers a varied and comprehensive financial aid program. Financial aid
is designed to bridge the gap between the costs of attending college and what students
and their families are expected to contribute. Citizens, or eligible non-citizens
of the United States, may apply for assistance regardless of sex, age, color, religion,
marital status, national origin, pregnancy related conditions, handicap, or veteran
There are four basic types of financial aid: Grants, Employment, Loans, and Scholarships.
Please be aware that EAC does not participate in any Federal Student Loan programs.
Students may obtain a Private educational loan through a bank or student loan company,
but the student must seek out these types of loans on their own. A complete description
of these programs is available on line at: www.studentaid.ed.gov. If you still have
unanswered questions you can call the Federal information number at 1-800-4FED-AID
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) (also known as the Buckley
Amendment) limits access to education records without express written consent. If

must be on file at EAC before any confidential information is released.
