Financial Aid


Muhlenberg’s Approach to Financial Aid

Our goal is to help as many students as possible afford the Muhlenberg educational experience. We do this through a combination of need-based and merit-based financial aid. We also provide counseling and assistance in navigating the financial aid paperwork and understanding your aid package once it has been awarded. We hope to recruit the most talented and diverse student body we can, and we know that financial aid is a big part of that decision for many families. Over 80% of Muhlenberg students receive some form of financial aid, and we hear from many families every year who tell us that their financial aid package was crucial in making Muhlenberg an affordable college option.

Appeals Process

Often questions about financial aid can be resolved via e-mail or phone call. However, if a family wishes to formally appeal their aid award, we ask that you submit the appeal in writing. Please state the basis for the appeal and provide as much detail as possible regarding the specifics of your family’s financial circumstances. We will respond in writing to all written appeals once our Financial Aid Appeals Committee has had a chance to review the appeal.

The Office of Financial Aid will be happy to assist you and answer any questions you may have. You can reach us at:
