Financial Aid

Invest in your future

Connecting top quality to best value

College is one of the best investments you can make for your future. It is also one of the biggest and most difficult decisions in your life and is often confusing, especially as you compare college tuition costs, scholarships and other financial aid.

And don’t let that sticker price scare you! Once you take scholarships, grants, loans and work-study into account, you’ll find that a Goshen College education is significantly less expensive than the original sticker price.

Affording a GC education

Did you know that last year 99% of GC students received financial aid and the average aid package was nearly $27,000? Learn how Goshen College can make your education dollars go further and help you choose the best financial aid option in paying for your college tuition.
