Financial Aid

Freshman Financial Aid Statistics

Claremont McKenna College students come from very diverse backgrounds. Consequently, the institution provides financial assistance to students who come from a variety of income backgrounds. This includes students who have very limited resources as well as students who have substantially more resources, but still need assistance to meet the educational costs. Hence, family income ranges vary for students who qualify for need-based financial aid.
