Financial Aid & Off-Campus Programs

At Whitworth University, our goal is to ensure that all students have the opportunity to participate in an off-campus program, whether domestic or international. We understand that financial concerns can be a very real barrier for some students. The Whitworth Office of International Education and Whitworth Student Financial Services are here to support you with thorough advising and guidance to aid resources that can help you make study abroad a reality.
