An excellent liberal arts education is one of the best investments you can make.

Domestic students and permanent residents are considered for admission at Davidson without regard for their financial resources.

Your academic potential, character, and accomplishments are the only factors considered in admission decisions–not your ability to pay the cost of attendance. About 51 percent of our students receive need-based aid, and 70 percent receive aid from some source.

The Davidson Trust

Through The Davidson Trust, we meet 100 percent of your calculated financial need entirely through grants and student employment. Our financial aid packages do not include a loan component, but you have the option of borrowing educational loans as a matter of personal choice.

Types of Aid

At Davidson College, 100 percent of calculated financial need is met entirely through grants and student employment. Additionally, there are several other resources families may use to help pay their share of college costs including scholarships, loans and outside resources.
