Priority: Life-Changing Financial Aid
Our commitment to financial aid arises from our Jesuit, Catholic mission—a belief in the power of education and a desire to ensure that every talented student can call the Heights home.
Today, thanks to Light the World, Boston College is one of only 19 private universities in the country that accept students solely for their potential to succeed and then meet their full demonstrated financial need. At a time when nearly seven in 10 BC undergraduates receive some form of aid, our pledge to educational access and affordability is more essential than ever.
