Financial Need-Based Support

Our admissions process is need-blind, meaning if you indicate that you need financial support, this will not impact your chances of acceptance in any way.

Admitted students (both domestic and international) will be eligible to apply for financial need-based support if their family income was less than $100,000 for both the 2019 and 2020 tax year.

Applicants indicate the interest to apply for financial need-based support in the “general information” section of application, then will be asked to submit additional information if admitted.
