    Program Expanded Aid Program Expanded Aid Program Explore Expanded Aid Program Program Home FAQ Press Release See Our Campus Need based financial aid packages for all undergraduate students no longer include need based loans This initiative begun in 2009 does not involve the use of income bands or cut offs to pre determine levels of eligibility and applies to all undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need who are U S citizens or eligible non citizens The end result is that in addition to a realistic academic year earnings expectation all need based aid packages now include scholarship and or grant gift assistance in place of need based loans Vanderbilt is Affordable Vanderbilt is committed to fostering an unparalleled educational experience that includes a community of talented and academically qualified individuals from all backgrounds As a result we do three very important things to make it possible for U S citizens and eligible non citizens from many different economic circumstances to enroll at Vanderbilt We are need blind in the admissions process This means that a family s ability to pay for a Vanderbilt education is not a factor in our admissions process Our goal is to admit students who will be academically successful and contribute to our community We meet 100 of demonstrated financial need With the additional investment that we make many students often pay no more to attend Vanderbilt than they would pay to attend a college with a lower total cost As stated above financial aid packages for undergraduate students now include no need based loans These three commitments place Vanderbilt among a small number of U S universities to adopt these philosophies and allocate the resources necessary to make a Vanderbilt education a reality for students and their families Back Home GO Quick Links Costs Undergraduate
