We encourage students from all financial backgrounds to apply for admission to Colby. Though transfer admission is highly competitive, if you are admitted and qualify for aid, we’ll meet 100 percent of your need as determined by the College. And you won’t see loans as a part of your financial aid package, because it’s our policy not to include them. Don’t let the cost of attending deter you from applying to Colby.

Documents can be sent via the College Board’s Institutional Documentation Service (IDOC).

To grant permission for Office of Admissions and Financial Aid at Colby to share information and discuss financial aid matters pertaining to your file with someone other than your parents, please complete our Permission to Share Financial Aid Information form.
