Costs & Payment Information

The total cost of the institute per participant is $9,225 (nine credits earned at $1,025 per credit for 2024-25). The participant costs exclusively cover tuition. The institute will separately cover the cost of lodging, some program materials and most meals throughout the destination retreats. Travel is not included. Employer tuition reimbursement, financial aid and scholarship opportunities may apply.

For this reason, annual employer tuition benefits and scholarships may be applied directly to the program. Federal financial aid may also be applied directly to the program should the candidate be enrolled in a graduate degree program.

Payment Information and Cancellation/Refund Policy

Employer Sponsored Tuition Benefits

The Whitworth Institute of Leadership is unique within executive education offerings because it bears official graduate-level credit (nine credits total). For this reason, annual employer tuition benefits may be applied directly to the program, as well as federal financial aid should the candidate be enrolled in a graduate degree. (The Whitworth MBA offers a concentration in Comprehensive Leadership through the Institute for candidates who would also like to pursue that degree. The Whitworth MBA is offered online and in person.)

“The program was deeply rich. The relationships and confidants I can now lean on outside of the courses is priceless.”

Michael Truex

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to support your investment in education. You do not have to be in a low-income category to qualify, but you 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.

Participants 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 along with Whitworth's Title IV code, which is 003804. Only domestic and permanent residents are eligible for financial aid through the FAFSA.
