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.
