Student Financial Aid

Tuition only covers 70% of a Nazareth education, and 100% of Nazareth students receive financial aid. Nazareth is committed to providing access to students with financial need by awarding more than $32 million in Nazareth College grant/scholarship assistance annually. 

Your gift on Naz Giving Day powers a future of possibility for Golden Flyers whose Nazareth education is made possible because of financial aid support.
