Connecticut College provides a need-based aid award to all admitted students that meets 100% of their demonstrated need. In 2016-17, 59% of enrolled students received some form of need-based financial aid, totaling over $24 million.

Many families, however, need additional funding to assist them in bridging the gap between the aid awarded to them by the College and the cost of attendance. To assist in that effort, the pages below contain information about financing options, such as monthly payment plans and student and parent loans.

Payment Plan

The payment plan is designed so that you can pay the total cost of education in monthly installments. Learn about the payment plan.

Student Loans

Student loan funding, including federal and private/alternative loans, is available to eligible students. Learn more about student loans.

Parent Loans

Parent Loans, such as the Federal Direct PLUS loan, can assist families looking to finance all or part of the student's cost of attendance. Learn more about parent loans.

The Higher Education Opportunity Act requires that educational institutions that participate in Title IV programs adhere to a code of conduct prohibiting conflicts of interest of its financial aid personnel [HEOA § 487(a)(25)]. Officers, employees and agents of Connecticut College are required to comply with this code of conduct. Read more . . .
