ABSTRACT
The relationship between psychological distress and perceived problems receiving student financial aid was assessed from 180 African American students attending a historically black college or university in the fall of 2010. After adjusting for age, grades, and school classification, a series of hierarchical linear regressions indicated that HBCU students' report of difficulty receiving financial aid was a significant predictor of report lower family connectedness and future orientation as well as higher conflicts with their partner in the last month and personal conflicts in the last month. The information gleaned from this research provides strategic guidance in understanding the behavioral and psychosocial effects of those with financial aid difficulties.
