We know that investing in a small liberal arts college is no small task, and that Lawrence University—which offers one of the nation's most intimate college environments (with 9 students for every faculty member)—is a significant investment.

We are confident that what we offer at Lawrence is unique among the nation's 1,600 four-year colleges and universities. More important, you will find generation after generation of Lawrentians who will attest that the Lawrence experience is worth it.

However, not everyone can afford the total cost of attendance at Lawrence University, which is why we devote substantial resources to financial aid to make the Lawrence experience more accessible.

Aid awards typically include gift aid, in the form of merit scholarships and need-based grants, and self-help aid provided through federal loans and student employment. Eligibility for need-based aid (grants and loans) is determined by a standardized calculation—using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the CSS PROFILE—that takes into account your household's income and assets, the number of individuals supported by your household, the age of your older parent, and the number of household members currently enrolled full time in an undergraduate college.

International Students

Lawrence University is committed to assisting international students in financing their education, as we understand that a high quality private college education is a significant financial investment for any family.

Financial aid packages for international students at Lawrence could consist of a combination of a need-based grant, a merit scholarship, and an allocation for campus employment. All applicants are automatically considered for scholarship at the time of their completed application.

Although we will work with students individually, please be aware that there are no full scholarships. All students are expected to contribute financially to the cost of their Lawrence education.

More information about scholarship and financial aid is available here. The International Admissions staff is a resource for you, and will work with you through the application and financial process to offer assistance and guidance.

Trying to determine what colleges might really cost can be a challenging exercise. All colleges post their cost of attendance, but the answer to the question, "Yes, but how much will it cost me?" depends on a variety of factors.
