Colgate is committed to making a life-changing education as affordable and attainable as possible. Beginning in the fall of 2020, the University is embracing a no-loan initiative as part of a continued commitment to support talented students from all economic backgrounds.
The no-loan initiative will eliminate federal loans from financial aid offers for all current and incoming students with a family income up to $125,000 and household assets typical of that income range, lessening the burden of student debt after graduation. This initiative stands in addition to our longstanding promise to meet 100% of admitted students' demonstrated need.
Applications are Live
Colgate's application for admission opened for students planning to enroll in the fall of 2020 on August 1, 2019. Applications can be submitted through Common App or The Coalition.
New This Year
Colgate will no longer require an additional supplement. Instead, students will answer two short response questions in the Colgate-specific areas of both the Common and Coalition application.
Colgate will continue to accept self-reported ACT or SAT scores for applicants and will not require official fee waiver verification for students who qualify for a fee waiver in the Common Application or Coalition Application.
