Tuition & Aid
Bottom line

At Carleton College, the total cost for tuition and fees and room and board comes to about $59,000 annually. Fortunately, the folks writing the checks at Carleton believe that cost should not be an obstacle to achieving a Carleton education. The average financial aid package for freshman includes a grant totaling $30,000—that gets you halfway there. When you factor in Carleton’s other financial aid offerings in the form of scholarships, work-study, and loans, the dollar amount will seem much more manageable
