Which colleges are need-blind?

Hi there! I'm doing some research on financial aid and I've heard about need-blind colleges. Could someone provide a list of need-blind colleges or point me in the right direction to find one? I'd really appreciate it!

Hi! Need-blind colleges are indeed an excellent resource for students who may require financial aid during their college years. A need-blind college doesn't take a student's financial situation into account when making admissions decisions, allowing for more equitable opportunities for students from various economic backgrounds.

Some well-known need-blind colleges in the United States are:

1. Harvard University

2. Yale University

3. Princeton University

4. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

5. Amherst College

6. Swarthmore College

7. Williams College

Keep in mind that need-blind policies might apply differently to domestic and international applicants; some colleges may be need-blind only for U.S. citizens.

For a more comprehensive list and to compare financial aid policies, I'd recommend checking out official college websites and this CollegeVine article: For a more exhaustive list, check out this article by CollegeVine: https://blog.collegevine.com/a-guide-to-need-blind-schools-complete-list

Best of luck with your research and college applications!
