Worth the Investment

We know choosing a college is a big decision for you and your family. But we think Goucher is the right choice. So does the Fiske Guide to Colleges, which consistently ranks Goucher a "Best Buy" for its outstanding combination of academics and affordability.

Students at small colleges more likely to graduate on time, and Goucher has a higher graduation rate than even that of the average private school.

On average, private schools award 3 times the amount of grant money as public universities. Goucher awards more than $44 million annually in financial aid (through grants, scholarships, loans, and federal work-study), and our average debt is almost 12 percent below the national average.

Goucher wants to set you up for academic, professional, and personal success.  We're proud to say that 100 percent of the Class of 2014 were employed and/or in graduate school within one year of graduation. (This number reflects 78 percent of the class, based upon a self-reported survey and other sources.)

If you are considering coming to Goucher, we encourage you to go ahead and apply. Our Office of Student Financial Aid will guide you and your family through our fair and transparent financial aid process to make Goucher an affordable investment.
