Affording Alfred

Discover Our Commitment to Making Quality Affordable

From our scholarships, work study, and more, we can connect you with the tools that put an Alfred University education within your reach.

A private school education doesn't have to come with the burden of high debt. We've always been pioneers in reducing barriers to higher learning, whether financial or social.

Financial Aid

  • You won't have to do it on your own: 97% of our students receive some form of financial aid.
  • We distribute $35 million a year in grants and scholarships - they don't have to be paid back.
  • Most of our financial aid packages include twice as much value in grants than in loans.
  • We urge all prospective students to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It's not just for federal loans - it could also get you a work study job on campus. Explore Financial Aid.
