Macalester is committed to delivering financial aid packages that meet the full demonstrated financial need of every admitted student.  Each student’s need for financial aid is evaluated based on his or her individual family financial circumstances.

To receive a full evaluation of financial aid eligibility, admitted students must complete the entire financial aid application process.  Financial aid application results are delivered shortly after the student is admitted, provided that priority filing dates are met.

Macalester has developed a Net Price Calculator that can be used to deliver a customized estimate of financial aid eligibility. Please use the calculator to help your family get an idea of what it might cost to attend Macalester.

Each year, Macalester publishes a table that shows the results of the financial aid process by family income range.

If you have questions about your family’s financial aid eligibility or circumstances, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
