The Consortium on Financing Higher Education, often known as COFHE, is an organization of thirty-five private colleges and universities that cooperate and support each other on financial issues, although the consortium often works together on academic issues.

The organization's officially stated goals are as follows:

  • Collecting from and reporting to the member institutions historical data relating to admission, financial aid, and costs.
  • Conducting periodic and special studies, as desired, to investigate aspects of institutional policy and administrative practices.
  • Convening meetings of the membership for general policy and research discussions of broad interest and import.
  • Monitoring developments within the federal government and the private sector as these developments relate to the financing of higher education, with specific emphasis on financial aid and student loan programs.
  • Cooperating and coordinating with other organizations concerned with higher education.

COFHE's home office is located at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a Washington office is housed at Johns Hopkins's Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies in the District of Columbia. The president of COFHE is Kristine Dillon.
