  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
Haverford is has an amazing, creative, insightful atmosphere that contributes to the success of all of its students. Its honor code is not strict-despite the opinions of others, in fact it is open to the ideas and issues that its students bring up and these issues are voted upon twice a year.
Kayla from Bronx, NY
A close-knit space where people of liberal tendencies really get to know one another. The faulty is superb and dedicated, and people generally look out for each other. The general air of people on campus is surprisingly reserved and polite.
Jasmin from Brooklyn, NY
Haverford College is giving me the well rounded education that I was looking for when first applying to colleges. To me, the most notable aspects about Haverford are the small class sizes that create a more intimate learning environment and the more than generous financial aid that is offered to its students.
Sofie from the U.S.
Forbes has ranked Haverfrod College 7th among Liberal Arts colleges and 11th overall for all colleges and universities. Without question you will receive an outstanding education with unsurpassed personal attention. Solely an undergrad school,classes are small and are taught by highly qualified professors who will know you by name.
Haverford has an extremely high rate of student acceptances to the top grad schools.
4 year graduation rate is 91%, which among the top in the nation.
Mike from NJ
Haverford College is a community of extremely caring and concerned people. One of the many aspects of the college that stands out is the our Honor Code; the Code is representative of the standard of trust and respect shared in the community and is seen in action when students feel comfortable leaving their doors unlocked and belongings unwatched, knowing that none of the community will take anything. But even more importantly, it also allows for students to take proctored exams because the professors know that students will respect the rules and not cheat.
