A college education is one of the most important investments a student will ever make. The questions around how to afford college are always an important part of the college decision process.
Blackburn is committed to making an exceptional, transformational education affordable for all students. We firmly believe that a rich, diverse student population is the lifeblood of our school and hope to bring a socially, culturally, and economically diverse and inclusive population to our campus each year. Blackburn continues to be one of the most affordable private, four-year liberal arts colleges in Illinois. But we don’t stop there – our Office of Financial Aid works tirelessly with students, families, state and federal resources, and even our generous alumni to award millions of dollars in need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships.
Combining our personalized approach to academics and the hands-on experience in our nationally-recognized Work Program, Blackburn is an incredible investment into your personal and professional future.
We encourage you to begin this process as early as possible to ensure that you receive maximum consideration for the aid for which you may qualify. Have questions? Connect with our Admissions and Financial Aid teams. We’re here to help anytime!
