Tuition & Financial Aid

Zaytuna is among the country's most generous colleges. Our goal is to have our students graduate debt-free.

An Education for All

As a Muslim college, Zaytuna is an inheritor of a centuries-long tradition that enables and encourages students to pursue knowledge as a right, regardless of economic circumstances. This is why our financial aid policy removes economic barriers to seeking knowledge by offering any admitted student who cannot afford the cost of education a generous financial assistance package. We follow a need-blind admissions process and do our best to ensure our students complete their education debt-free. Students apply for and receive financial aid directly from Zaytuna in the form of merit scholarships or need-based aid.

Financial Aid

Zaytuna College does not participate in federal- or state-sponsored grant or loan programs. Students may apply for financial aid from the College. Assistance is classified into two types, based on the criteria by which the financial assistance is awarded: merit-based scholarships and need-based scholarships (zakat).

Merit-based Scholarships

Merit scholarships are available through generous donations to the College. Any student or applicant with a GPA of 3.7 or above may apply for a merit scholarship.

Need-based Financial Aid

Need-based aid is awarded on a scale depending on the student’s and (if applicable) parents’ income and assets. Zaytuna designed its need-based aid to ensure that all qualified students can attend the College, while asking that they, with their families, contribute what they are reasonably able to pay toward their education.

Financial Aid for SAI

Anyone that is granted need-based aid for undergraduate studies is automatically granted need-based aid for the Summer Arabic Intensive.
