Scholarships not only make attending Hope possible for many deserving students, they also help limit encumbering students with excessive loan debt (now up to almost $1.3 trillion nationally). The percentage of Hope graduates with debt and the average student loan debt per graduate is below the national average. In addition, repayment rates are well above national averages.
Our goal is to keep improving as we aim to be the best value among leading liberal arts colleges. We will do this, with your help, by providing an unsurpassed educational experience through faithful stewardship and the development of resources.
