Cost & Financial Aid
This page is an open invitation.
Money shouldn’t be an obstacle to a world-class education. We meet one hundred percent of calculated need for all admitted students. We're also need blind for U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents—that means we don’t consider your financial situation when we consider your application. We admit terrific people, and then we make sure Wellesley is possible for them. For much more information about financial aid, visit the friendly people 🤓 at Student Financial Services. For now, please admire these facts:
You’ll pay only what you can afford—nothing more.
This is money that you do *not* have to repay.
Which is about half the national average.
We maintain a financial aid budget of 74 million dollars. That is money dedicated exclusively to supporting students who have calculated financial need.
