Revealing the Numbers
In 2014/15, more than 60% of undergraduate students enrolled at Vanderbilt received some type of financial assistance from one or more sources.
There is no specific income that will automatically disqualify a family from receiving need-based aid at Vanderbilt. Income is only one consideration when determining eligibility for need-based financial aid. Other significant factors include, but are not limited to, family size; number of children in college; private elementary and secondary tuition expenses; and family assets.
Applying for need-based aid is the only way we can determine your eligibility for such financial assistance.
