After careful evaluation of the college’s financial challenges and a thorough review of alternatives, the Board of Trustees reluctantly has decided to close the college after graduation in May 2024. Magdalen College will teach out the remainder of the 2023-2024 academic year and has already begun to work with a variety of institutions—including other colleges, our academic accreditation agency (NECHE), and the New Hampshire Department of Education—to ensure a smooth pathway for students to complete their degrees. We understand and share the heartbreak by our students, faculty, staff, and alumni, and we will work closely with them to succeed through this transition.
In 2021, Newsweek ranked Magdalen College #15 on their list of “Most Affordable Private Colleges in the U.S.”
Magdalen College of the Liberal Arts is an investment in your future. Thanks to scholarships and grants, federal and state loans, and work-study opportunities, Magdalen College can work closely with students and families to explore all available funding resources. Magdalen seeks to make it possible for all qualified students to attend, regardless of income. Our goal is to try our best to meet each student’s demonstrated financial need.
Each family’s circumstances are unique. Therefore, we encourage all families to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which will determine the need-based federal and institutional aid the student may be eligible for. To be considered for need-based aid, a FAFSA must be submitted each year by April 1.
If upon receiving Magdalen College’s financial aid award, a student finds that another Newman Guide school is giving more aid so that it costs less overall to attend that college (total out-of-pocket cost), Magdalen College will attempt to work with the student and family to match that out-of-pocket cost. Simply submit your award letter from another Newman Guide school, and upon review, the financial aid team will determine whether Magdalen can match the competing school’s offer.
