McDaniel College Financial Aid

The tradition of liberal arts studies rests comfortably here. Exemplary teaching is its central mission, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

McDaniel College provides an ideal location for learning which brings together students from 35 states and 18 countries. Its picturesque campus is situated on a hilltop in historic Westminster, a short drive from two major metropolitan centers, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. One of the first coeducational colleges in the nation, it has been both innovative and independent since its founding in 1867.
