Financial Aid

Haverford College meets the needs of students eligible for financial aid, whether they are at Haverford or on approved study abroad programs. Students can apply their financial aid awards, including their Haverford grant funds, toward their approved program abroad.

In order to be eligible, students must fill out Haverford’s International Academic Programs Declaration form by October 5 for spring programs, or February 5 for fall and full-year programs. Students must submit the required financial aid forms to the Financial Aid Office no later than April 20, and should contact the Financial Aid Office if they have any questions. Some international programs also have sources of financial aid, and students are required to apply for them.

Financial aid covers tuition, room, board, basic living expenses, insurance, and some miscellaneous expenses such as books and supplies. It does not cover entertainment or travel; however, an allowance for the cost of round-trip airfare (departure from East Coast city) will be deducted from the Haverford tuition bill of students receiving Haverford College grant funds based on need. Haverford will provide an allowance for only one round trip airfare for either a semester or year program of study.

There is a meeting on Financial Aid held each semester for all students going abroad. Contact Rebecca Avery with any questions.

Students who cannot pay application fees, deposits and/or purchase airline tickets should email Dean Mancini.
