An Investment You Can Afford

The staff in Student Financial Services works closely with students and their families to make a Mount Holyoke education affordable, whether or not the student is eligible for financial aid. We participate in a number of parent financing plans and offer a monthly payment plan. Please be in touch with any questions you may have. We advise families that when planning how to finance the cost of education, it is important to plan expenses for four years. While the College makes every effort to keep costs down, families should expect annual increases.
