Financial Aid Eligibility and Policies
At Mount Holyoke, we believe a college education is one of the most important investments a student will ever make. The College is prepared to assist students and their families manage the cost of a Mount Holyoke education. While the College expects families to assume the primary responsibility for paying for their daughter's education to the level of their maximum capacity, Mount Holyoke has a substantial commitment to providing financial aid to those students who demonstrate financial need.
Financial aid eligibility is based on the difference between the estimated student budget (tuition, room and board, fees, books and personal expenses, travel expenses) and the expected family contribution (FC).
