Our Commitment to You

Franklin & Marshall College is committed to recruiting and enrolling highly qualified students. We pledge to meet 100 percent of every student's institutionally determined need for all four years.

To provide maximum financial assistance to students in need, Franklin & Marshall does not offer merit-based aid. Our investment in need-based aid underscores our commitment to enrolling the very best students who otherwise could not afford to attend F&M. Franklin & Marshall provides more than $43 million per year in need-based grants and scholarships. Fifty-two percent of our students receive some type of need-based aid in the form of grants, scholarships, loans, and/or campus employment.

How It Works

We use information from the CSS PROFILE , FAFSA and federal income taxes to determine your family contribution. The family contribution is then subtracted from the Cost of Attendance for the academic year. The difference is your "demonstrated financial need."
