Financial Aid

Our goal in admissions and financial aid is to bring the best students to Holy Cross, no matter what their financial circumstances.

Holy Cross is one of a select group of colleges and universities that accept students regardless of their ability to pay (“need-blind admissions”) and then meet 100% of their need, as calculated according to nationally recognized financial aid criteria.

Nearly two-thirds of our students receive some form of aid, typically in a package that combines scholarships and grants, loans, and work-study employment. In this year's enrolling class, nearly half received Holy Cross scholarships, with an average award of more than $29,500.

We are here to work with you through each step of the financial aid process. You may find that Holy Cross is more affordable than you assumed. And remember that the education we offer is a proven investment in your future.
