Loan and Financing Information
The quality of a college education has never been more important. In today's economy, the type of education obtained will clearly play an important role in a person's future success. We also know that Carleton's cost is not insignificant for most families. To help families afford the cost of a Carleton education, we are pleased to be able to offer several financing options for families. The options available include need and non-need based loans and other tuition payment options. Families are encouraged to review the options to determine which is best suited for their specific needs.
- Descriptions of need and non-need based Federal, State, and alternative loan programs along with a loan comparison chart and an alternative financing worksheet to help determine the amount of additional financing a family might require. Other tuition payment options are also described here.
