Office of Financial Aid

We are here to help you navigate the financial aid process. We realize that financial aid involves a lot of questions; our staff is dedicated to assisting students and their families with those questions. Together with the Office of Admission, we work to support the goals of the College: to bring a student body of quality and diversity to campus.

A Few Numbers

We know the price of a college education can be costly. Pitzer supports its students through need-based financial aid.

  • 100% – the need Pitzer meets
  • 47% – the percent of students who receive aid
  • $43,482 – the average need-based scholarship of a Pitzer student
  • $17,848 – the average loan commitment (or responsibility) of a Pitzer graduate (for May 2018 graduates)

*Parent income breakdown for students who applied for and received Pitzer aid during the 2019-2020 application cycle.
