If you look at college as a good investment, it makes sense to look at Adrian.

Adrian College Academic Scholarships
Students who are full time and enter into college with the required ACT and GPA could be awarded the Adrian College Scholarship assistance up to eight (8) semesters. Students who receive a merit-based Adrian College scholarship will need to maintain their full time status (above 12 credit hours) and maintain good academic standing. Failure to maintain any one item of criteria could result in loss of the scholarship. Also, students are only eligible to have two (2) scholarships given by Adrian College to count towards their financial aid award.
Please note: Students who enroll for a fifth (5th) year of study are not awarded financial aid. Students enrolling for a fifth (5th) year will be asked to complete an appeal if they wish to have the opportunity to continue receiving institutional aid.
Adrian College Need-Based Grant
Students who file the FAFSA and need financial assistance could be awarded Adrian College Need-Based Grant money. This need-based grant money is free, given to the student from Adrian College. Adrian College Need-Based Grant money is not guaranteed each year, and is determined by the student’s FAFSA and residency status (on or off campus).
The Adrian College Grant will be reduced, if necessary, to maintain, federal, state, and College budgets. Any other financial aid awards that exceed $99 and are not part of the original Financial Aid award, whether it be Adrian College or outside scholarships, federal/state grant or scholarship money, federal loans or tuition waiver can reduce the Adrian College Need-Based Grant.
