Oglethorpe University is among the top colleges nationwide for providing financial aid to its students, according to LendEDU, a marketplace for student loans and student loan refinance.
After analyzing data from the National Center for Education Statistics and Peterson’s Financial Aid Dataset, LendEDU ranked Oglethorpe at 127th of the best overall colleges for financial aid assistance, or top 16% nationally, and 7th in the state of Georgia.
The study considered need-based financial aid, non-need-based financial aid, and financial aid for international students at 829 colleges and universities in the United States.
“We released this report to help future college students better understand which colleges may be affordable for them by taking into account more than just the cost of attendance,” wrote LendEDU Vice President for Content Dave Rathmanner. “Oglethorpe University is clearly doing a great job at helping its students afford their education!”
In the past, LendEDU has also recognized Oglethorpe for graduating students with a low amount of debt, its affordability for freshmen with financial aid needs, and the average early salaries of graduates.
