Financial Aid

You can afford Principia College. Let us show you how we can help.

90% of our students receive some kind of financial aid, and an average package covers about two-thirds of annual costs.

It’s our belief that no one should be denied a Principia College degree for financial reasons. Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends that’s a philosophy we’ve been able to put into practice. As a result, Principia College offers one of the most generous scholarship and aid programs in the country.

The value and affordability of a Principia education has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report, Kiplinger's Personal Finance, and Money magazine. Principia ranked #1 most affordable school in Money magazine's 2014 top 50 colleges based on educational quality, affordability, and career outcomes. 

Unlike schools processing thousands of applications, Principia is in the enviable position of being able to address each student’s needs individually. We don’t have to rely on formulas and models alone, but can tailor our aid packages for each family. 

You won’t find a financial aid office more dedicated to meeting your financial needs. We’ll do everything we can to make sure financial concerns do not keep you from enrolling. The sooner you’re in touch with our office, the sooner we can get to work on your package and remove finances as an obstacle to obtaining a Principia College degree.
