A college education is one of the most important investments you will ever make. Most significantly, the U.S. Census Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports that over the working life of adults, those who have earned a bachelor's degree will earn $2.1 million, as opposed to $1.2 million earned by those with only a high school diploma.
CSE is committed to providing an affordable and enriching experience for students. Through scholarships and grants, the College partners with families in making this important investment in your future:
- One third of CSE's annual budget is dedicated to student aid programs
- More than 90% of undergraduate students receive some form of assistance either through CSE institutional scholarships, state and federal funding, or private scholarships.
- The average incoming full-time undergraduate student receives over $33,000 in Gift Aid.
The Office of Financial Aid will assist you and your family develop a customized financial plan and help assure you receive all the aid for which you qualify.
|Federal Direct Loan||$5,500||$5,500||$5,500|
|Institutional Gift Aid||$17,000||$2,000||$0|
Each student is unique. While these comparisons are reflective of a typical CSE student, there are many factors used to estimate a financial aid award. To find out how much you might qualify for, use the CSE Net Price Calculator. In addition to Direct Costs, students also need to plan for other educational expenditures such as books, transportation, and personal expenses.
