The Investment of a Lifetime, Because You are Worth It

When you’re looking at the value of the K Experience—individualized curriculum, overseas experiences, and impactful internships or externships—it’s hard to believe it could be so affordable.

At Kalamazoo College we invest in your future, just take a look at the numbers and you’ll see our commitment to creating an affordable, accessible experience:

  • 98% of our students receive some sort of financial aid.
  • Merit scholarships range between $36,000-$44,000 annually.
  • $45,752: Average need-based financial aid package.
  • Nearly $60 million was awarded in grants and scholarships to students in the 2022-23 academic year

More Bang for Your Buck
