You've probably seen the accolades touting that we have an incredible return on investment. How do we do it?
The first step is working with you to make your college experience affordable through grants, scholarships, work study, loans and other sources of financial aid.
Applying for financial aid is easier than you might think. When you file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), we will check your eligibility for federal, state and institutional need-based programs as well as Clarkson Grants. These awards are based on strong potential for success and financial need. To be eligible for merit scholarships and grants, we need to receive your admission application by January 15. If you are applying early decision, the deadline is December 1. For need-based aid, we recommend that you file the FAFSA by February 1.
*Housing costs are based on a weighted average. Freshman housing charges are usually slightly less than the weighted average. For exact housing figures, please see our current housing rates webpage.
**Total fixed costs apply to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. See costs and financial aid for international students.
