Welcome to the St. Olaf College Financial Aid Office website. Whether you are a prospective student or parent just learning about St. Olaf or a current student looking for answers to your financing questions, we are happy you have found us. Our programs provide support to Ole students and families from a wide variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. As a staff, we are committed to providing personalized service to families as they work through the financing of a St. Olaf education.
But more important, if you have questions about how to pay for a St. Olaf education, don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and call us at 877-235-8386, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by the first floor of Tomson Hall (Tomson 120). We are here to help!
Paying for college involves a partnership between our students, their families, and the
college. We look carefully at the unique financial circumstances of every family, and offer every student the best package of support we can. While each family differs in its resources, its priorities and its attitudes toward money, St. Olaf follows policies and practices to treat families equitably in the process. The majority of our financial aid program is need-based aid, including federal, state, and college grants, student employment awards, and loans. St. Olaf also offers a number of merit scholarship awards for academic accomplishments, community involvement, and fine arts ability and achievement.
