President Nicole Hurd and Shelby Maguire, director of financial aid, were featured on CBS Sunday Morning on June 9 in a report focusing on the rising costs of higher education. CBS News national correspondent Lilia Luciano and a film crew visited campus on May 23 to interview Hurd about the topic, noting in recent years how Lafayette has responded by making a college degree affordable for more students. See the report.

Lafayette’s no loan policy, which was announced last fall, is designed to help make a college education more affordable for lower- and middle-income students and their families.

Starting with new applicants in the 2024-25 academic year, families with total family incomes of up to $200,000 and typical assets for families in this income group will have their financial need met through grants and work study, without any loans.
