Tuition and Financial Aid
The decision you make about how to finance your degree is an important one. For that reason, Whitworth provides dedicated staff to help you navigate the process. From your inquiry all the way through the application process, the staff at the Whitworth Financial Aid Office is available to assist you. Many students in Whitworth graduate programs receive some form of financial aid, either from federal loans or through Whitworth’s various scholarships and grant opportunities.
Tuition for the Whitworth Graduate Studies in Education programs is $635 per credit for the 2017-18 academic year. For example, if you are pursuing a 34-credit degree, such as an M.Ed. in Elementary Education, your total cost of tuition would be approximately $21,590 (34 credits X $635 per credit).
Financial aid is available to Whitworth students to support their investment in their graduate education. Students do not have to be in a low-income category to qualify, but they do need to apply to be considered for financial aid. The Whitworth Financial Aid Office (509.777.3215) is eager to assist you in determining the best way to fund your education.
Students applying for financial aid of any kind must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. List Whitworth University on the FAFSA along with Whitworth’s Title IV code, 003804. Only domestic and permanent residents are eligible for financial aid through the FAFSA.
The Post-9/11 G.I. Bill, which offers federal benefits, is designed to provide substantial educational benefits to servicemen and women. It covers a large part of the cost of a Whitworth degree.
Visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website to learn more and determine your eligibility under the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill. Whitworth’s veterans advisor in the registrar’s office (509.777.3798) can assist you in determining your eligibility; the Whitworth Financial Aid Office will then work with you to ensure that you are getting the proper assistance.
