Financial Assistance

At Appleby College, we believe students deserve every opportunity to pursue an education that excites and challenges them, an education that offers them the chance to discover and embrace their passions. Appleby's commitment to Financial Assistance is designed to ensure that students can pursue such an outstanding education. An Appleby education requires a significant commitment and we believe financial need should never prevent a student from reaching their full potential.
