New Student Financial Aid


Dear friends,

As parents of three daughters, Denise and I faced the college decision with a great deal of consideration and prayer. When each daughter reached her senior year, we found ourselves looking at funding the next chapter of her story – college. It would be the largest single expense item that we had encountered to date. What do we do? Do we look for the cheapest option, the live-at-home path, the online alternative? Or do we take a deep breath and consider the kind of formation we are purchasing for our child?

As president-elect of Eastern Nazarene College, a Christian college on the South Shore of Boston, I hear the parental concerns. I know that, in the landscape of colleges today, sacrifice is required on the part of our families to choose a private Christian college. The reality is that your experience at Eastern will look very different than at any other college. Here you will find faculty and administrators who mentor students and invest in their lives. You will find classrooms with high academic standards and compassionate, caring Christian professors who seek to help shape the classroom experience specifically for your student. You will find a community of students and staff that care for each other and journey together. Eastern is a very special place, and our commitment to you is to do everything we can to help make your child’s dream of attending Eastern a reality.

Eastern is here for families like yours. We are unapologetically Christian, academically rigorous, and our students genuinely love their college. Eastern is one of the most affordable Christian colleges in the nation. I am amazed at the number of parents who say to me at graduation, with tears in their eyes, “We never thought this was possible, and we wouldn’t take anything for the impact that Eastern has had on our child.”

Let Eastern help make your deepest hopes for your college-bound son or daughter come true. Please contact Rebecca Hynes ( in the Office of Admissions and let Eastern help you find a financial path that will allow you to give this great gift to your child.

Looking back, the greatest gift we gave our three now-adult daughters was a college degree from a Christian college. Our choice is Eastern. I hope yours is too.
