The average loan debt for our graduates is significantly lower than the national average. According to the College Board, the average debt for students attending a four-year private college was $32,600. The average debt for Earlham students was about $6,500 lower.
We make applying for and receiving aid simple. Most scholarships are renewable for up to four years, as long as your student maintains a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA and remains enrolled fulltime. The rest of the aid package would normally stay in place unless there’s a change in the family’s financial circumstances. Be sure the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form, is completed each year.
