Office of Financial Aid
College is expensive. But at Amherst, it is affordable.
Dean of Financial Aid
We’re committed to making sure an Amherst education is affordable to every admitted student. Under our need-blind admission policy, your family’s financial circumstances will never affect whether you're admitted or not. Our financial aid program is regularly cited as one of the country's best.

Application Status and Award Notices
We don’t mail paper financial aid award letters or notices about incomplete applications to current or new students who have matriculated. These records may be accessed at the secure website amherst.edu/go/netpartner by entering your Amherst user name and password. The website permits current students and applicants for admission to check the status of their financial aid applications on-line. Financial aid awards for admitted and current students may also be reviewed on-line.
