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

Haverford will meet the full demonstrated need of all admitted students who are determined to be eligible according to the College's formula and procedures.

We are committed to minimizing student debt. Students with family income below $60,000 per year will not have a loan expectation included in their financial aid package; loan expectations for incomes above this threshold remain low, ranging from $1,500 to $3,000 each year.

The Haverford Student Loan Debt Relief Fund, an innovative program to help students who do graduate from Haverford with debt, provides funds to young alumni who are employed in jobs of high social value with low remuneration or who are in transition at some point following graduation.

Haverford also provides a fund for low income and first generation students to apply for small grants to help with unexpected expenses throughout the school year.
