Financial Aid

We are committed to the premise that an excellent liberal arts education is one of the best investments a family can make. Davidson's admission process is need-blind for domestic students and permanent residents. Your academic potential, character, and accomplishments are the only factors considered in admission decisions–not your ability to pay the cost of attendance. About 51 percent of our students receive need-based aid, and 70 percent receive aid from some source.

The Davidson Trust

Through The Davidson Trust, we meet 100 percent of your calculated financial need entirely through grants and student employment. Our financial aid packages do not include a loan component, but you have the option of borrowing educational loans as a matter of personal choice.

How We Calculate Aid

Within the standards set by the U.S. Department of Education, we use our own formula to determine eligibility for aid. From the financial information your family provides by completing the FAFSA and the CSS Financial Aid PROFILE, we calculate both your expected family contribution and demonstrated need. Your financial aid award will be based on Davidson's full annual costs (tuition, room, board, books and personal costs) and a calculated contribution from you and your family.
