MEN’S AND WOMEN’S NCAA DIVISION III INTERCOLLEGIATE TEAMS

The Value of Rhodes

More than 30% of Rhodes students participate on one of our men’s and women’s Division III athletic teams. Rhodes not only competes for Southern Athletic Association championships on a regular basis, we are also consistently at the top of our conference for the number of student-athletes who achieve a 3.25 or higher semester GPA. If you are interested in participating in athletics and would like to contact one of our coaches, please visit rhodes.edu/athletics.

The financial aid and scholarship programs offered by Rhodes make it possible for qualified students from all walks of life to attend. Our merit-based and need-based financial aid packages level the higher education playing field, and it is not uncommon for the actual out-of-pocket expense of attending Rhodes to be no greater than that of attending a large state university. The Rhodes College Net Price Calculator can assist you in estimating an Expected Family Contribution and in understanding all the types of financial aid that might be available to you. The result will provide you with an estimated award package like one you might receive after you have applied for admission and been accepted at Rhodes. To access the calculator, please visit rhodes.edu/npc. Admission and Financial Aid Deadlines Rhodes practices holistic admission, meaning that our evaluation reviews each student’s high school transcript, SAT or ACT scores, a written essay, extracurricular activities, and school and teacher recommendations.
