What is the 568 Presidents Group?

The 568 Presidents Group is an affiliation of colleges and universities, all of which must admit students on a need-blind basis. The Group works together in an effort to maintain a need-based financial aid system that is understandable and fair and will bring greater clarity, simplicity, and equity to the process of assessing each family's ability to pay for college. It is referred to as a “Presidents” group because it was formed by a group of 28 college and university presidents from need-blind schools in 1998.
