For students ready for a four-year, residential liberal arts college experience after the 10th or 11th grade, Simon’s Rock provides a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity.

Financial Aid, Scholarships & Calculating Your Family Contribution

Many of our students are also eligible for need-based financial aid. To find out your estimated costs based on your personal situation, use Net Price Calculator. In addition, we consider all first-year applicants for merit-based scholarships; there is no separate application. Your decision to apply for financial aid will not affect the likelihood of your admission. Your family’s financial situation will be considered only in the process of awarding financial aid.
