Federal Student Debt Cancellation update: The Biden-Harris Administration recently announced a new one-time student federal loan cancellation to be granted based on income. Student loan payment pause extended through 12/31/2022. Visit go.carleton.edu/debt-relief for an overview and next steps.
We meet 100 percent of every student’s demonstrated need. We approach financial aid as a partnership between Carleton, our students, and their families. When you apply, we start by determining what your family can reasonably pay. We use a combination of need-based grants, student employment, and manageable loans to cover the rest.
Our goal: To make Carleton affordable to every admitted student.
Financial aid deadlines are the same as admission application deadlines. Notification of aid amount is sent with your acceptance letter.
