Cur Non is our rally cry. The motto for the Marquis de Lafayette, Cur Non means Why Not.  We challenge our students to move beyond the familiar. We dare them to use their intellect, energy, and talent to impact the world.  Cur Non means anything is possible at Lafayette.

We are also committed to meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need for all admitted students. Our goal is for all admitted students to receive the aid they need to realize their educational dreams. Our financial aid staff is always available to answer your questions.
