We’ve made applying for financial aid as easy as possible—just follow the four steps below. And remember, we’re just a click or call away if you need anything.

P 800 343 1379

STEP 1: Fill out the FAFSA

Complete the FAFSA form after December 31. Gordon's code is 002153.

The FAFSA is changing for the 2024–25 academic year! Learn more about the changes →


The FAFSA provides Gordon with an assessment of your family’s financial strengths. Financial aid awards are based on information from the FAFSA.

Gordon College no longer requires financial aid applicants to complete a supplemental form.

STEP 2: Receive your financial aid award

Awards will be sent on a rolling basis to tell you how much aid you qualify for—including scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study.


STEP 3: Send in your deposit

In order to hold your financial aid award and housing, a refundable $200 deposit is due no later than June 1. Pay online or make checks payable to Gordon College and send to:

Gordon College
Office of Admissions
255 Grapevine Road
Wenham, MA 01984
