Financial Aid Highlights: As of April 8th, 2,135 admitted first-year students had completed a financial aid application and had been reviewed for need-based aid. Of these 2,135 students, 563 students received an enhanced financial aid package under our initiative to support students from enrollment priority groups. We expect this number to change since there are quite a few admitted students who have not yet completed their financial aid application.
