Financial Aid at Harvey Mudd

We believe your college choice should be more about fit than finances.

Still, we understand that cost often affects college choice, so it is important for you to understand all of your financial aid options. While each family is treated individually, and family resources vary widely, here are some basic statistics from our 2016–2017 academic year:

  • About 74 percent of Harvey Mudd students receive financial aid
  • The average financial aid award is about $38,572, of which about $29,850 comes in grant aid from Harvey Mudd College (not from government sources)
  • About 48 percent of Harvey Mudd students receive need-based aid
  • 21 percent of incoming first-year students qualify for our merit-based awards (additional 9 percent including Harvey Mudd College National Merit Awards)
  • 69 percent of incoming first-year students receive scholarship assistance directly from Harvey Mudd College
  • Our policy is to provide 100 percent of every student’s demonstrated need
