Financial Aid

At Sweet Briar, we invest in YOU. We’ve done so for more than 100 years.

Our transparent tuition model makes it easy to predict costs for families of all income levels.

We also offer financial aid for need-based students, and more than 200 scholarships are available for eligible students.

At Sweet Briar, we understand that a family’s financial situation doesn’t fit into neat categories. That’s why we work with you and your family one-on-one, providing thoughtful advice and personal assistance as you move through the financial aid process.

Sweet Briar has consistently been ranked by Forbes magazine as a “top-value” college. Most of our students receive some form of financial assistance, and we are committed to making Sweet Briar affordable for as many students as possible.

You can complete your FAFSA starting December 31. We will review your aid information and get detailed financial aid awards to admitted and returning students starting in mid-November.

Sweet Briar offers comprehensive financial aid services that include individualized assistance, scholarships, institutional, state and federal grants, and a range of student loan options.
