Financial Aid

What's the bottom line? You can afford Alfred University!

  • Fall 2022 applicants: when you apply and are accepted, you'll receive at least 50% off your tuition.
  • We awarded $25 million in gift aid to our students last year (awards that don't need to be paid back!)
  • 97% of our students receive some form of financial assistance - from need-based financial aid, to scholarships, to grants. There are also other types of aid and loans available to make an Alfred University education affordable for you.

Don't assume you can't afford Alfred University or that you won't qualify for need-based financial aid. Complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form to find out. Our Federal School Code for the FAFSA: 002668
