Tuition Free Week

Did you know that tuition only covers about 2/3 of what it actually costs to attend Colgate? Tuition Free Week is the point in the semester where your tuition money ‘runs out’ and gifts from Alumni, Parents, Friends, and Students start to fund your education.
Tuition Free Week
Without the support of Colgate Alumni many of your favorite Colgate opportunities would not be available to you. In order to make your Colgate education possible alumni, parents, friends, and students give over $29 million to Colgate each year! Help us celebrate Tuition Free Week by stopping by one of our events below.

Happy Tuition Free Week!
