We’re interested in people who work hard, take intellectual risks, believe that education isn’t confined to a classroom and get deeply involved in some kind of community. To us, the work you do every day, morning to night, matters more than a few Saturday mornings of testing — which explains why we were one of the first colleges to make the SAT (and then other standardized tests) optional for admission.
We give about $29 million in financial aid to our students every year. Nearly half of our students
receive financial aid; the average annual aid package is about $38,000. Our entire financial aid budget supports students with demonstrated financial need.
