Our Commitment to Financial Aid

Need-based financial aid awards are determined using an institutional methodology employed by many private colleges and universities.
Financial Need is the Cost of Attendance minus the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). To estimate your family's contribution and your actual cost, use the Net Price Calculator.*
*Many apologies, but our new and improved Net Price Calculator is under construction and should be available next week. Please check back later, and feel free to call the financial aid office at 413.559.5484 with any questions.
