Ninety percent of students receive financial assistance

Several prestigious publications have recognized our combined strength of academic quality and low cost, including The Princeton Review, which has twice (2015-2016) named New College the No. 1 “best value.” Kiplinger’s Personal Finance also has ranked New College among the “Top 5 Best Values” (2016) in public higher education.

Bright Futures

New College students complete contracts with written evaluations and no GPAs are computed. For students to continue receiving the Bright Futures scholarship, they must satisfactorily complete both fall and spring contracts. There is only one opportunity for restoration and that is if academic difficulty is encountered in the first year.
