Students who wish to defer all or part of their Swarthmore costs may be interested in the long-term, low-interest educational loans, monthly payment plan, or work opportunities described below. All families, whether receiving other grant support from the College or meeting all College costs on their own, may use one or more of these programs. We have described the kinds of financing available, to whom, and at what cost in our Financing Options Pamphlet.
Monthly Payment Plan
The Swarthmore College Monthly Payment Plan allows families to pay tuition, room, board and fees, interest-free, in ten installments, beginning in May (or nine installments if you enroll in the payment plan in June; eight installments with a July enrollment). The annual participation fee is $60.
Loans-The federal Direct Stafford (student) and Plus (parent) loans
In May, we will provide newly admitted students with a loan information packet as well as update this page with instructions and detailed loan information. Until then see our Financing Options Pamphlet
If you are a current Swarthmore College student, and have not borrowed previously, please contact our office: email@example.com
