An education at a top-rated, private liberal arts college such as Mount Holyoke is one of the most worthwhile investments you will ever make. Outstanding professors, small classes, sophisticated technology and facilities, cutting-edge academic and student programs - all these elements come with a price. Yet studies show that an education at a top-rated, private liberal arts college is one of the most worthwhile investments you will ever make.

Note: Per state regulation, health insurance, not included in the costs listed above, is mandatory for all students. Students who are U.S. citizens or who hold U.S. permanent residency status may waive the health insurance premium with proof of comparable insurance coverage. The premium is $1,930 for the academic year, 2017-18. 

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 they are eligible for financial aid. We participate in a number of parent financing plans and offer a monthly payment plan and tuition prepayment option.

When planning how to finance your education, it is important to plan your expenses for four years. While the college makes every effort to keep costs down, you should expect increases from year to year.
