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.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
