Financing Your Education

Year after year, the value of a Lafayette education is rated highly by Payscale.com for both starting salaries after graduation and 30-year return on investment. But a top-rated education does not come at bargain prices. At Lafayette, we know the sacrifice that parents and students make to afford all of the costs associated with attending college. We want to help you understand all of the financing options available, and the process for applying for grants, loans, payment plans, and work-study opportunities.

Lafayette awarded over $36 million in College-funded aid in the form of scholarships and need-based grants in 2012-13 and has budgeted over $39 million in financial aid for 2013-14. Over half of the College’s students are eligible for financial assistance and receive the aid they need to make a Lafayette education possible through grants, scholarships, loans, and/or work-study.

The financial aid staff is always available for personal or phone appointments with students and/or families. The privacy and confidentiality of the information you provide is important to us, so please include and be prepared to provide identifying information when contacting our office or submitting any documents.
