An investment in learning is an investment in your future — and we realize that the cost of a college education can be a serious financial commitment for you and your family. Making Kenyon accessible to students from all backgrounds is the foundation of our financial aid philosophy.

That’s why Kenyon offers several types of need-based financial aid, including grants, student loans and on-campus employment. We also participate in a number of educational loan programs that are not based on financial need.

If you have been admitted to Kenyon and are impacted by this year’s FAFSA processing delays, you may request an extension by completing the form on your portal.
