A brief description of notable policies or programs to make the institution accessible and affordable to low-income students:

At Bucknell, we welcome financial aid applications from any students who apply for admission, but we do not have specific financial aid funding for students who come from low-income families. We do spend time working with the students, parents, and guidance counselors to educate them on our financial aid process, let them know what aid is available for those who qualify, and what they have to do in order to apply. We try to give them as much information as possible and advise them that we are here if they have further questions or need guidance during the application process.

A brief description of notable policies or programs to support non-traditional students:

"The Bucknell Community College Scholars program is for high-achieving, low- to moderate-income community college students who want to earn their associate's degree ... and then take their education further. Bucknell partners with five community colleges on this program.
