Does my financial aid package cover off-campus housing? - 11.24.20

This post has been archived. The information below may be outdated.

Most financial aid packages will have a room-and-board budget based on a scenario where students are living at home with their families. The Office of Financial Aid continues to work closely with Student Affairs, Residence Life and Finance to address the needs of students who are unable to live at home with family. Students who were approved for off-campus housing in the fall semester will have an off-campus budget for the spring semester.

In late June, Pitzer announced a modest 2.2% tuition increase for the 2020-21 academic year. Based on the decision to pivot to a fully online fall semester, Pitzer’s Board of Trustees has decided to roll back that tuition increase and hold it constant at the 2019-20 level. There will be no increase to tuition and fees for the coming year. There will be no Pitzer room-and-board charges in the fall.
