Whitworth University is one of the best higher-education values in the Western United States. We're consistently ranked among the top five master's-level universities in the 15-state region of the Western United States (#1 in 2022) in U.S. News & World Report's annual ranking of best values. We're also ranked in the top half of Kiplinger's ranking of the top 100 private university values in the United States.
The rankings recognize our strong commitments to academic quality and financial aid. These commitments, along with small class sizes and a supportive campus community, exceptional teaching, and thorough career and graduate school preparation, ensure that Whitworth students get an excellent return on their investment.
Here are a few more reasons Whitworth is a great value:
- 100 percent of students receive financial aid.
- The average scholarships and grants for 2021-22 first-year students was $35,758 per year.
- 84 percent of Whitworth's graduates finish in four years.
We invite you to work through the financial aid process with us. Our financial aid staff welcomes your questions and is happy to provide information and counsel at any time.
