    It's really expensive, but there are tons of scholarships and aid that the school offers if you do, in fact, need it. The financial aid office is very understanding of the fact that families generally were not expecting students to be going to college for another two years usually, so they do what they can to split the aid throughout the students.

    simon's rock is very expensive at sticker price, but almost no one pays that. the school does their best to offer the typical federal aid, institutional aid, and merit scholarships. put your best foot forward on the applications to be considered for merit scholarships. there are also jobs available on campus, etc. in the end, the value can be seen. students who work hard here leave with strong writing skills, critical engagement, multi-disciplinary understanding, and for those who stay for the ba, thesis experience. simon's rock prepares students incredibly to be strong academically, and gives them ample opportunity to develop themselves personally.

    Simon's Rock is a really expensive school and has its pros and cons. It isn't for everyone but it does give out a lot of scholarships. Most students transfer after one or two years because students get an Associates Degree after two years and can transfer into another college as a junior.

    the best part about it is getting out of high school a couple years early. it definitely saves lots of money if you're in private schools. the kids are also pretty great and diverse. everybody fits in somewhere, and for the most part in multiple somewheres.
