  • Total Tuition, Housing, Food, and Fees

  • Scholarships

    Thanks to the generosity of W&J alumni and other donors, W&J offers a range of merit scholarships including our signature W&J Thrive Scholarship which starts at $17,000 a year, as well as the Presidential, Scholars, and Dean's scholarships.

  • Institutional Grants

    W&J and its generous donors offer a number of W&J College Grants to eligible full-time students, including our Visit Grant, Out-of-State Grant, and to those who demonstrate need for financial assistance.

  • State & Federal Grants

    State and federal grant programs are also available for students who demonstrate need for financial assistance. Complete the FAFSA to see if you are eligible.

  • Loans

    Students should expect to take out some loans to finance their education. But, W&J is a national leader when comparing its low student loan default rate. What this means is you can take comfort knowing that the overwhelming majority of W&J graduates begin high-quality careers right out of school and are able to afford paying back their student loans. We are also a top performer in the U.S. on social mobility, according to U.S. News & World Report.

  • Outside Scholarships

    Available scholarships from vetted external organizations are posted to our External Scholarships page.

  • Work Study

    On average 40% of students participate in a federal or W&J work study program in which they not only are awarded a financial stipend, but also skills for the future.

  • What You Pay

Estimate Your College Cost

Use the Net Price Calculator to estimate your financial package and your expected contribution. The calculator provides an estimate of the cost of attendance using financial aid and merit award data from the previous year and the information you provide.

Grants & Scholarships

Institutional, state, and federal grants and a number of scholarships can help offset the cost of attending W&J College. Nearly every student receives financial aid from W&J College, and much of that aid is a gift, not a loan, so you're not required to pay it back.

Applying for Financial Aid

Applying for financial aid begins the process of determining your eligibility for aid and identifying programs for which you are eligible. There's no cost to apply for financial aid. Once you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), we can work with you to explore your options.
