Scholarships: The financial aid office is great and always willing to explain the process to students.

Scholarships: Reed is on a completely need-based financial aid system, so you won't get merit-based scholarships for good academic performance (because most everyone was a high achiever) or athletics (ha!). The college covers 100% of the difference between what you can afford to pay and what it costs, usually with the standard amounts of federal loans, federal grants, federal work-study, and institutional grants in that order.. What you can afford is calculated by FAFSA and the CSS PROFILE forms. The main complaint is that amount might be a little higher than what people think they can *actually* afford, but usually not drastically so. If you think they have horribly miscalculated or not taken certain circumstances into consideration (or if your family circumstances change i.e. a parent gets laid off), you can appeal for more aid. It's a pretty fair and straightforward system, and the financial aid office staff are accessible and very easy to work with.

Scholarships: Only Need-Based – Reed doesn't offer merit-based scholarships, so if you (or your family) can pay your way, then you will. However, ALL financial need is met according to the financial aid office and I have personally found that to be a true claim.

Scholarships: Fin Aid – I had lots of success at Reed securing good finicial aid. I feel that they are very accomdating and try to help students as much as possible
