Financial Aid Information for Parents

Whether this is your first time dealing with financial aid or you’re sending your youngest off to college, there’s no need for the process to be complicated. We hope to guide your family through it as smoothly as possible, and we are here to answer any questions and address any concerns that may arise. 

We want to make your child’s dreams come true here at Babson.

Babson College will meet 100% of your family’s demonstrated need in the first year, and we commit to that same amount for four years, provided there’s no major change in your family’s financial circumstances or number of children in college. So, you don’t have to stress every year that your child’s aid package is going to drastically change, and you can focus on helping your child navigate this exciting time!

Investing in Your Family

A Babson degree is more than just a business degree. It’s an investment in a career that starts even before your child graduates. Over 87% of our students have at least one internship while at Babson, and the starting salary for the Class of 2021 was $62,525, the highest in the school’s history. Our curriculum blends business and liberal arts and sciences courses, preparing students to be critical, resourceful thinkers who are ready to tackle any career they want—and maybe change the world in the process. 

Our students are ready to enter this ever-changing world, equipped with practical skills like communications and critical thinking, an entrepreneurial mindset, and the business fundamentals to get their ideas and passions off the ground. The ROI of a Babson degree is not only high, but it is vast.
