A Catawba Education: It's Worth It

Your Investment in the Future

The cost of a college education is an investment in the future of an individual. Very few investment opportunities offer the potential return offered by a college education. Catawba College is committed to making our educational experience as affordable as possible. Every student's application for financial need is carefully evaluated based on Federal guidelines and the college's goal of providing educational opportunity to qualified students.

This year Catawba will provide over six million dollars in direct aid to students. As a result of this commitment, the actual, out-of-pocket cost of attendance at Catawba College can surprisingly be much less than other comparably priced, and even lower priced, institutions.

The average financial aid package at Catawba for 2010-2011 was $27,603 with average institutional gift aid being $10,583. This commitment to providing an affordable education has earned the college recognition in recent issues of The Princeton Review's Best 378 Colleges and U.S. World and News Report's Best Colleges 2014. calculator.png
