Bucknell University students lead exciting and invigorating academic lives. Some participate in groundbreaking research, while others triumph on stage or in the studio. Caring faculty members are both teachers and mentors for these students in and out of the classroom. At the same time, they are also scholars who conduct research, publish widely, receive media coverage and receive grants from national organizations for their work.

Student Life, Health & Safety

Students so much enjoy their experience that a very high percentage of first-year students return as sophomores (see our Fact Book for current retention rates).

Tuition & Financial Aid

We are here to work with you and your family regarding financial need and aid. Any student who feels he or she needs assistance may apply for financial aid. We consider each family's situation and re-evaluate cases annually to accommodate changes in financial resources.

Student Success & Outcomes

One indicator of student satisfaction and student achievement is our high four-year and six-year graduation rates (see our Fact Book for current graduation rates).
