Money Matters

Carleton's generous financial aid policy allows you to participate in multiple Carleton programs and one non-Carleton program with full financial aid. Carleton charges a $500 administrative fee for non-Carleton programs. Scholarships are available from Carleton as well as a variety of external funding sources.
