Hamilton has a well-earned reputation as a college of opportunity. That's why we follow a need-blind policy when reviewing domestic applications for admission. What does this mean? Your family's financial situation will not be considered when assessing your qualifications for admission.
Once you are accepted, the Financial Aid Office will make your Hamilton education affordable through a comprehensive program of scholarships, loans and campus jobs. We work with your family to meet 100% of your demonstrated need by providing financial aid that makes up the difference between the cost of a Hamilton education and the amount your family is able to pay.
With generous financial aid, the cost of a Hamilton education can be surprisingly affordable -- sometimes more affordable than that offered by a fine public university. Here's why:
If Hamilton is your dream college, we encourage you to complete an admission application and apply for financial aid. Our Financial Aid Team will then prepare a package that meets your full demonstrated need.
Many of us who work in the Admission and Financial Aid Offices received financial assistance to attend college, so we understand the significant sacrifices made by a family to fund a child's education. We are committed to providing options that are financially responsible over the long term.
A Hamilton education will probably be more affordable than you first imagined.
