First-Year Financial Aid: Drew Ranks Top 30% Nationally
Moves up 36 places on Student Loan Report list.
December 2017 – The Student Loan Report ranks Drew University in the top 30 percent nationally in providing financial aid to first-year students.
In the report’s list of Top Private Colleges for Freshman Financial Aid, Drew is 69th among 250 schools. That’s a 36-place improvement from the report’s last list.
This year, across all class levels, the university provided $35 million in scholarships and grants, with 80 percent of its students receiving financial aid. Such aid reduces the cost of attending college and minimizes the amount of debt that students accumulate—another category where Drew ranks highly. The school is going even further, however, by reducing its “sticker price” as well.
For the 2018-19 academic year, Drew’s tuition will fall 20 percent, to $38,668. The reset rolls back tuition to the level that students paid in 2010. For more details, please click here.
Student Loan’s financial aid ranking is based on 2015-16 data from Peterson’s, an authority on higher education information.
