Everything you need to know about financial aid and paying for your Wellesley education.


Student Financial Services (SFS), located in Schneider Center is a one-stop destination for both prospective and returning students. The SFS staff is here to assist students and their families in understanding the aid application process, parent and student loans, payment plans, student employment, and more. Whether or not you receive financial aid, we are here to help families figure out how to pay for college. We are confident that a Wellesley education is one of the best investments your family can make.

In 2020-2021, we offered over $74 million in financial aid, and the average annual aid offer was more than $56,000. We also assist families with parent loans and payment plans, whether or not their daughter receives financial aid. We will help families figure out the best plan for them.
