Tuition & Financial Aid

The decision you make about how to finance your degree is an important one. Whitworth provides dedicated staff to help you navigate the process. From your inquiry all the way through the application process, staff members in the Whitworth Financial Aid Office are available to assist you. Most students in Whitworth's adult degree programs receive some form of financial aid, either from federal loans or through scholarship and grant opportunities.

Tuition and Costs for the Program

Whitworth has a long-standing commitment to the adult learner who attends in the evening, offering significant savings for its evening degree programs. Whitworth's reduced evening-tuition rate is just $540 per credit for the 2017-18 academic school year. In all continuing studies courses, books and related costs are provided free of charge. And, as an extra perk, your books are delivered to you the first night of class.

  • Financial Aid

    Financial aid is available to Whitworth students to support their investment in their continuing 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.

    Students applying for financial aid of any kind must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available online at List Whitworth University on the FAFSA using Whitworth's Title IV code: 003804. Only domestic and permanent residents are eligible for financial aid through the FAFSA. The Whitworth Financial Aid Office (509.777.3215) is eager to assist you in determining the best way to fund your education.

  • Scholarships and Grants

    There may be scholarship and grant opportunities available to adult and continuing education students who qualify; find more information on the Whitworth Financial Aid website.

  • Employer Reimbursement

    Check with your employer about tuition benefits. Even if your company does not have a formal policy of paying tuition benefits, some of our students have received education benefits by showing their supervisors the value their education will bring to the company.

    If you have tuition benefits through your place of employment, Whitworth will accept payment when your company pays, usually at the end of the term. Call 509.777.3209 or contact the Whitworth Student Accounting Services office for details.

  • Assistance for Veterans

    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 our website to learn more about the veteran education benefits available to you.

    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 receive the proper assistance.

  • Payment Options

    Payment options are available, including monthly payments with a minimal set-up fee. Contact the Whitworth Student Accounting Services Office, at, for information.
