FAFSA Submission Update

  • The U.S. Department of Education has implemented a soft launch of theĀ 2024-2025 FAFSA. The form is now open, but for the time being, the Federal Student Aid Administration has identified technical issues that need to be addressed to improve the overall application process for students and families. If you experience any difficulties or website issues while working on the FAFSA, you should exit the form and check back at a later time. Full processing of FAFSA forms will not start for several weeks, and we will begin to record receipt of your FAFSA in late April. Due to the soft launch of the FAFSA, some financial aid application deadlines have changed. See our Financial Aid Deadlines web page for more information.

Lafayette College can help you reach your ambitions, and we work to make our premier education accessible and affordable.

We believe financing a college education is a partnership between the student, their family and their higher education institution. At Lafayette College, our goal is for all admitted students to receive the financial aid for which they qualify in order to realize their educational goals.

We offer a variety of tools to help students and their families plan ahead for this investment to calculate an estimate of what your education might cost. Lafayette College is one of 73 institutions in the country that guarantees to meet 100% of demonstrated need for all applicants who meet the application deadlines. Lafayette also provides merit-based scholarships to a select few applicants.

Please note that due to the delayed release of the 2024-25 FAFSA, some of our deadlines have been adjusted for the Fall 2024 applicants.

No Loan Initiative

Beginning with students entering the College in the 2024-2025 academic year, we will replace federal loans with grants for domestic students with a total family income $200,000 or less and with typical family assets for their income levels.*

see our faq section for additional details

*Total family income is calculated using taxable income, including wages, interest, and business income, plus untaxed income, like child support, social security, and pension distributions. Business income includes income generated from sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations, and rental income. Assets include bank accounts, investments, home equity, and business net worth, but do not include retirement savings. Losses are added back into income, including business losses, capital losses, and depreciation on real estate and/or rental property.
