Enabling Access, Diversity and Affordability

Holy Cross has committed to meeting full-demonstrated need.

This policy is critical because it ensures that our applicants are judged on their merits, not their means. It also helps ensure that a Holy Cross education remains within reach to exceptional students from across a wider cultural, geographic and economic spectrum. But it is a challenging commitment to uphold.

As a Catholic and Jesuit college, this policy is regarded as central to our mission and identity. This campaign will help Holy Cross preserve this policy.

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.
