We are committed to ensuring that your Hamilton education is affordable and worthy of your investment


Hamilton has a well-earned reputation as a “school of opportunity” and is need-blind in its admission decisions. All of Hamilton’s financial aid is based on demonstrated financial need, which is determined by calculating the difference between the expected family contribution and the cost of attendance. If you qualify for financial assistance and are admitted to Hamilton, we will meet your full demonstrated financial need for all four years.

Our goal is to accept only the most talented and deserving students and then provide the financial aid that makes it possible for them to enroll. We are also committed to providing an exceptional experience for all students who choose Hamilton, regardless of their financial background.
