Approximately 80% of the international students who enroll at Macalester received financial aid awards. We are committed to meeting the full demonstrated financial need of every student we admit. The financial aid budget is not unlimited, so the amount of financial aid an applicant requires is a factor as we decide which students will be offered admission, and students requiring large scholarships will face greater competition in the selection process.
