Tuition, fees and room-and-board charges cover only about 79 percent of the total cost of educating a student at Dickinson. Funding from Dickinson’s endowment and from alumni and foundation support makes up the difference. Students who receive need-based or merit-based aid are supported to an even greater degree.
