Our need-blind admission policy allows us to seek and admit students from across the country and around the world based not on family income, 而是取决于成就和承诺.

When families demonstrate financial need, we meet it one hundred percent. The majority of our students pay less—often far less—than the cost of attendance. 并非巧合的是, 高等教育编年史 called us the “best of the best” American liberal arts colleges for supporting low-income, high-talent学生.

在我们的财政援助计划中, 我们已经用额外的奖学金取代了贷款, 这样我们的学生就可以毕业了. We were one of the first and remain one of the only colleges in the country to adopt a no-loan policy.
