We understand that a Marlboro education is a significant financial investment. We also know that it’s an investment with a huge lifetime value. Marlboro students learn how to harness their critical and creative thinking skills to respond to complex questions and seek out innovative alternatives—skills that can be applied to a wide variety of professions. In a knowledge-based economy where many of the good jobs of the future don’t yet exist, a Marlboro education prepares students for successful and versatile careers, not just jobs. See where a Marlboro education has taken some of our alumni.

As a very small, private liberal arts college, Marlboro makes a conscious and continuous effort to keep tuition and fees as affordable as possible. In recent years, we’ve increased the amount of need-based grant aid provided to students and increased other awards for financial aid. Today more than 90 percent of full-time Marlboro students receive some form of financial assistance. We are also proud to report that in recent years the Marlboro average student debt has been more than $5,000 below the national average.

Beginning the process of financial planning for college can be daunting. Our financial aid staff is here to help and will work with your family to provide guidance in the aid application process, explain options, and answer questions. Contact the Marlboro financial aid office at (800) 343-0049 or to get started.
