New report commends McDaniel College for its commitment to helping low-income students

May 08, 2013

McDaniel College is among the best private liberal arts colleges nationwide making college more accessible and affordable for those with the greatest financial need, according to a report released by the New America Foundation. 

The report singles out McDaniel as one of the colleges making extraordinary efforts to recruit, enroll, and financially assist low-income students.

While the study found that low-income students pay high net prices at most private colleges, McDaniel is one of the few, and only in Maryland, commended for its support of deserving high-need students.

The Foundation’s analysis considers data for the 2010-2011 academic year, the share of undergraduates receiving federal Pell Grants, as well as the average net price paid by students whose families earn $30,000 or less. According to the report, 28 percent of McDaniel students received Pell Grants and the average net price for low-income students was below $10,000. 

“Access is a hallmark of the college and we continue to attract the best and brightest students regardless of their financial circumstances,” said McDaniel College president Roger N. Casey.
