Financial Aid

Education should be accessible to everyone who yearns to discover and pursue their passions, engage in service to others and lead a life of purpose. That core Jesuit belief is one reason why we offer students a robust financial support system that is based on each student’s demonstrated need. Doing so enables us to welcome talented and motivated students whose unique perspectives and contributions strengthen our community.

Holy Cross adheres to a 'need-blind' admissions policy

Holy Cross offers two financial aid policies that are only found at a few top institutions:

  • Your financial circumstances have no bearing on your admission decision. This ensures that all of our applicants are evaluated on a level playing field. 
  • We meet 100 percent of accepted students’ demonstrated need. This helps make a Holy Cross education more affordable than you might realize.
