Our students may be eligible for a variety of aid resources. Approximately three-quarters of all aid received by our first-year students comes from Elizabethtown College through endowed scholarships, need-based aid, or merit-based aid.
In addition, our students receive outside financial aid such as federal and state grants, and private aid based on their financial need and academic profile. For more information on Federal Student Aid, contact the Financial Aid Office and don't forget to fill out the FAFSA.
