An exemplary education within reach

Our Commitment

Holy Cross is one of a select group of colleges (less than 100) that meets 100% of each admitted student's demonstrated financial need.

Students whose families have a total income of $75,000 or less and reasonable assets will receive a full tuition grant.

We use a standard process to carefully review each family’s financial circumstances and establish an expected contribution; this takes into consideration the number of dependents enrolled in college, as well as income and other assets. The level of financial assistance in future years will be impacted by income and asset fluctuations as well as changes in the number of dependent family members enrolled as undergraduate students in a college or university.

Estimating your Eligibility 

Holy Cross is pleased to offer two calculators to help families make more informed decisions when it comes to understanding college costs. These tools are intended only for students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and will help to provide an estimate of need-based financial aid available at Holy Cross. Additionally, a limited number of merit-based scholarships are available to students who qualify, not identified through these calculators.
