Like all of America’s best colleges and universities, Reed is expensive. Believing that everyone at the college benefits from having a diverse student population from a wide range of economic and social backgrounds, however, Reed is committed to providing a comprehensive, need-based financial aid program that seeks to bring the college’s educational opportunities within the reach of all qualified students. Approximately one-half of Reed students receive financial assistance. For the 2014-15 academic year, the average financial aid package – including grants, loans, and work opportunities – is approximately $44,147.

Applying for financial aid may seem, at times, to be a complex and confusing process. You will find many of your questions answered here. Additionally, staff members in the financial aid office are ready to assist you with the process and address all of your questions or concerns.
