    There are so many more resources available to you at Scripps that really make it easy to see where your money is going to. The faculty, resources, and quality of life is extrememly amazing at Scripps.

    Scripps offers merit scholarships, in addition to need-based financial aid, and now all applicants are considered for these scholarships. I am a James E. Scripps scholar, and the New Generation scholarship is an incredibly generous opportunity for first-generation college students.

    Scripps is pretty pricey, but you definitely get a lot for your money. Even though my education is expensive, I wouldn't trade it for anything. There are lots of options for scholarships too that are worth looking into.

    It is expensive and there is very little financial help available. They claim they will help you, but it has been impossible to find a job. Students that are on work study seem to be able to find some assistance, but the financial aid office is useless. I was shocked at how little the man that runs the financial aid department cares. Once he learned I was not a financial aid student and one that had to find a way to pay the tuition myself he had no suggestions. I will have enormous debt when I leave Scripps. All scholarships available on campus are need based. There isn't one scholarship that is available to a students that are not on financial assistance. This has been a HUGE disappointment to my family. We were sure that we would qualify for some financial assistance, we have received ZERO help from the college. Be extremely careful. $57,000 a year is a lot of money.
