"Financial aid became the pivotal point in my decision! The Office of Financial Aid was so generous and so willing to work with me. I felt like they really wanted me at Covenant, and they helped me make that a reality.”
- Cara Smole '22
The financial aid office at Covenant College is uncompromising in its commitment to equitable service. We consider each student’s financial circumstances and academic merit holistically, because if you’re the right fit for Covenant, we want you to be here. We walk with families hand in hand through the world of financial aid from application to graduation (and we also help with strategies on paying student loans after graduation).
