What is value?
We believe that every student should have access to a selective, nationally ranked institution like Earlham. That’s why you can rest assured that we’ll be here to help as you navigate the college financial aid process.
We also realize that affordability does not necessarily equal value. Earlham College is not only affordable, but we are consistently ranked among U.S. News and World Report’s top national liberal arts institutions, and, according to The Princeton Review, we have one of the nation’s best classroom experiences. Because of all of this, The Princeton Review also consistently ranks us as one of the nation’s “Best Value” colleges.
The quality of our academic experiences goes far beyond rankings. Many prestigious organizations—including the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, the Watson Foundation, and the Lilly Foundation—invest in our students, our academic programs and our facilities.
Even with all of these accolades, we measure our success by the countless Earlhamites who lead extraordinary lives of mission and influence due to their Earlham experience. No statistic or numerical rank can account for the personal commitment an Earlham education demands or the lifelong impact our graduates can expect as alumni.
As a Best Value College, we seek to provide an education that is not an expense for our students, but an investment in their future. Because we believe value comes from making our world-class education, and the extraordinary opportunities that come with it, accessible for all of our students—not only while they’re at Earlham, but also long after they graduate.
At Earlham College, our programs are never one size fits all. Communicate with your personal program adviser to discover just how affordable, flexible and easy it can be to attain your degree. Let’s get started today.

Your personalized Epic journey
A college education is a path for you to achieve your goals. But without the right guides, opportunities and fellow travelers, your journey to success is made more difficult than it has to be.
Earlham’s faculty and staff are dedicated to the success of our students. And that’s why we’ve designed the Epic journey—your personalized path through college that includes academics, internships, research, off-campus study and leadership opportunities.
Starting with Earlham’s Center for Global and Career Education, you’ll work with career coaches, advisers and off-campus study faculty and staff to craft a plan for the experiences you want to have before graduation—including how you want to use your donor-funded Epic Advantage experience. Whatever your major, if you have an interest in entrepreneurship, healthcare, social justice or sustainability, we also have specialized faculty and programs ready to engage with you in developing solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems.
And because none of us achieves success alone, you’ll find at Earlham a richly diverse community of fellow students who will broaden your network—and your worldview—in amazing ways.
