Tuition & Financial Aid

More than 90% of students in the Whitworth Master in Teaching Program are receiving some form of financial aid, either from federal loans or through Whitworth's various scholarship and grant opportunities. Outside grants are also available for those seeking certification to teach in high-need areas, including math and science.
Tuition for the Whitworth Master in Teaching Program is $620 per credit for the 2017-18 school year. Once you've begun the program, the tuition will not change as long as you stay enrolled. Students in the elementary education program must complete 57-61 credits; students seeking secondary certification must complete 48-50 credits.
Other costs: MIT faculty members are dedicated to finding the best resources available while keeping in mind the financial concerns of students. Typically, books for the entire program will not cost more than $1,000; they usually run quite a bit less. Fees are minimal and do not include unnecessary items such as parking or health services but are tied to costs associated with teacher preparation.
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, which is 003804. Only domestic and permanent residents are eligible for financial aid through the FAFSA.

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