The Colby Commitment
No fees. No loans. No barriers.
If your family has a total income of $75,000 or less (with assets typical of this income range), we’ve ensured they will have a parent or guardian contribution of $0. For families with total income of $150,000 or less and typical assets, your parent or guardian contribution will be no more than $15,000 — which may make Colby cost less for you than any other four-year college or university.
There is no fee to apply to Colby.
We do not require any additional writing supplements.
Test scores are optional.
Each applicant is evaluated as an individual—within the context of their background.
We work closely with leading college-access programs, groups, and organizations to help the nation’s brightest young scholars find their way to Colby.
