Tuition & Financial Aid

Need-blind admissions: What does that mean for you?

Our admissions decisions are made without any regard for your family’s financial circumstance. And we meet 100% of the demonstrated need for every admitted student with grants that you do not pay back.

Why does this matter? Because the magic of Exeter lives in our ability to ensure equitable access and to create an environment where all students benefit from the diversity of viewpoints essential to real learning.
