You can afford Haverford
We meet 100% of demonstrated need
Haverford will meet the full demonstrated need of all admitted students who are determined to be eligible according to the College's formula and procedures.
We are committed to minimizing student debt
Students with family income below $60,000 per year will not have a loan expectation included in their financial aid package; loan expectations for incomes above this threshold remain low, ranging from $1,500 to $3,000 each year.
The Haverford Student Loan Debt Relief Fund, an innovative program to help students who do graduate from Haverford with debt, provides funds to young alumni who are employed in jobs of high social value with low remuneration or who are in transition at some point following graduation.
We provide support beyond Financial Aid
While the College’s commitment to low-income and first-generation students finds deepest expression in our financial aid policy of meeting the full demonstrated need for all students, there are often needs that are felt in the regular flow of a student’s life which fall outside the parameters of overall financial aid awards. Our LIFTFAR (Low-Income-And-First-in-Their-Family-Assistance-and-Resources) Program aims to help fill these gaps for things like living expenditures, athletic gear, travel, internships, emergency medical expenses, and more.
We're here to help
