Lafayette College can help you reach your ambitions, and we work to make our premier education accessible and affordable.
We believe in providing opportunities and want to make college an investment for both the student and their family. Our goal is for all admitted students to receive the aid they need to realize their educational goals.
We offer a range of support to make our premier education affordable. First, use MyinTuition to calculate an estimate of what your education might cost. Then, take advantage of our Need-Based Aid, which meets 100% of demonstrated need for all students. We also provide Non-Need-Based Scholarships, like the Marquis Awards–Marquis Fellowships (full tuition) and Marquis Scholarships (half tuition). All applicants are considered for non-need-based scholarships.

Lafayette is committed to meet 100% of demonstrated need for all students. We will replace federal loans with grants and work study for first-year domestic students entering Lafayette for the 2022-2023 academic year with a total family income up to $150,000 and with typical family assets for their income levels.
*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.
The CSS Profile is a financial aid application used to determine demonstrated need for institutional need-based grants. It is not required for first year students entering the College in Fall 2022 who attend high schools designated as high-poverty*. These students are exempt from submitting it for the remainder of their time at Lafayette.
See our faq section for additional details.
* The Office of Financial Aid reserves the right to request additional documentation to determine eligibility for need-based institutional financial aid.
