The Office of Financial Aid Services at Connecticut College is committed to enabling the best qualified students to attend. Our financial aid program awards assistance to qualified U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens.

The full financial need of all undergraduate students, as determined by the Office of Financial Aid Services, is met with a combination of loans, part-time employment and grants. We consider the financing of education expenses to be the responsibility of students and parents, up to the level of their ability to contribute. Therefore, parent financial information is the primary basis for the determination of need.

A student's eligibility for need-based aid is determined annually through a careful review of their family's financial situation. As a result, a student’s eligibility for aid may increase or decrease from year-to-year depending on a number of different factors such as changes in income, household size/number in college, etc.
