BEST COLLEGES ON FINANCIAL AID
Listed below are the best colleges and universities that meet financial aid need! “Need” is the difference between the amount your family can afford to pay for your education (determined by the FAFSA and CS Profile, called your Expected Financial Contribution or EFC) and the price to attend the college or university (referred to as the “sticker” price, or the total amount it would cost to attend if given no financial aid). These schools generally have the highest endowments and strongest financial aid programs.
These colleges have made a priority to make college affordable to anyone who is admitted, and often times will increase financial aid packages if a student appeals their original amount. The schools on this list vary in size, selectivity, location and type of institution.
