Franklin University Switzerland recognizes the importance of need-based aid programs to students with demonstrated need. Financial need is defined as the difference between the family's available resources and the cost of attending Franklin University Switzerland. It is expected that the student and their parents will contribute to the fullest possible extent, so that the University's limited financial aid funds can be shared most equitably among the greatest number of qualifying students.

For a comprehensive understanding of all aid available at Franklin, please consult our Financial Aid Guide.
