An investment in your education always pays the best interest. At Randolph College, we are committed to working closely with each student to make a quality liberal arts and sciences education affordable. We encourage all students to apply for financial aid—even those who assume that they are ineligible for assistance because of income level. The Student Financial Services Office provides applicants with information regarding need-based student aid, as well as many payment and loan alternatives. Please feel free to call and discuss your alternatives with a financial aid counselor or visit the campus and meet with us!
