We seek to keep quality education affordable for qualified students. Our annual costs are offset by a financial assistance program that includes:
- academic merit-based scholarships
- Austin College need-based grants
- federal and state grants
- loan programs
- outside scholarship entities
While students and their families assume primary responsibility for the cost of college, our Financial Aid Office will work closely with you to develop financial aid packages and/or financing plans that work best for your family.
Austin College prides itself on providing an educational experience of great value to our students—and others have noticed.
- Washington Monthly College Guide recognized Austin College in its ranking of “America’s Affordable Elite” and those liberal arts colleges providing the “Best Bang for the Buck.”
- Barron’s Best Buys in College Education, Fiske Guide to Colleges, and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, all of which highlight colleges that combine outstanding academics, post-graduate success, and affordable costs.
