    The Admissions Office:
    Carleton's financial aid is primarily need-based. This means that we try to meet 100% of demonstrated need for every student, regardless of entry status. Financial aid is recalculated each year and is based on a family's current financial status (as shown on FAFSA and CSS Profile forms). Your demonstrated capacity to contribute is the only factor used to determine how much and what kind of aid you will receive.
