This lack of information is a major problem

It leads to fewer students attending college (Bettinger, et al., 2012)

It results in undermatching—when too few lower-income students apply to top schools (Hoxby and Avery, 2013)

Wellesley Invests in Women

Wellesley offers the financial support that any qualified student requires to attend the College.

One of Wellesley’s most fundamental institutional values is reflected in its policy of need-blind admission for U.S. students—providing financial aid that fully meets each admitted student’s demonstrated need throughout her time at the College.

In 2015
RANK 6
ECONOMIC DIVERSITY

Wellesley was ranked 6th among U.S. liberal arts colleges on economic diversity by the New York Times’ College Access Index.
