Holy Cross is one of the rare institutions that has committed to both need-blind admissions and meeting full-demonstrated need.
These policies are critical because they ensure that our applicants are judged on their merits, not their means. They also help ensure that a Holy Cross education remains within reach to exceptional students from across a wider cultural, geographic and economic spectrum. But they are challenging commitments to uphold.
As a Catholic and Jesuit college, these policies are traditionally regarded as central to our mission and identity. This campaign will help Holy Cross preserve these dual policies.
Currently, 60 percent of Holy Cross students receive financial aid. Part of the capital raised during the campaign will be devoted to increased overall support of financial aid.
