What Amount of Financial Assistance is Offered?
Hope College's average financial aid plan for newly arriving freshman students is $23,982. About 93.0% of incoming students obtain financial aid, the majority of which is scholarships and grants.
Financial aid incorporates loans, grants, and scholarships. However, student loans need to be paid back, so they are not a real discount.
