The Feb. 11 edition of U.S. News and World Report listed Carleton College as one of 64 schools that meets the full financial need of their students. The report took into account a 2012 U.S. News survey in which 1,164 colleges reported the average percentage of financial need it met for its incoming undergraduate students in fall 2011. A college that fully meets financial need will use some form of financial aid to cover the gap between total costs including tuition, room and board, books, travel, and expected family contribution.
