Life-Changing Financial Aid
Today, seven in 10 BC undergraduates receive some form of financial aid. Our mission? To ensure that every talented student accepted to BC can call the Heights home.
In many ways, BC’s commitment to financial aid best expresses its Jesuit, Catholic values.
Boston College is one of only 19 private universities in the country that admit students “need-blind” and then meet each U.S. undergraduate's full demonstrated financial need.
What does that mean? BC accepts students for their potential to succeed rather than their ability to afford tuition, ensuring young women and men from every background can benefit from an exceptional education.
This standard is all the more difficult to maintain when BC has one of the smallest endowments of those select universities. Therefore, raising essential funds for student aid—especially at a time when seven in 10 BC students receive some assistance—is a primary Light the World goal.
Your support ensures talented students can always call the Heights home.
