Financial Aid

Our Goal

The goal of Reed's financial aid program is to make a Reed education available to qualified students who would otherwise be unable to afford it. Approximately one-half of Reed students receive financial assistance.

For the 2015–16 academic year, the average financial aid package, including grants, loans, and work opportunities, was approximately $44,038.

Applying for financial aid may seem, at times, to be a complex and confusing process. You will find many of your questions answered here. Additionally, staff members in the financial aid office are ready to assist you with the process and address all of your questions or concerns.
