Affording a W&J Education

The Office of Financial Aid encourages all students to explore financial aid opportunities on an annual basis and take an active role in the financial aid process.

Typically, assistance from W&J is the largest source of aid in financial aid packages.  W&J provided over 23 million dollars in grant and scholarship funds for the 2013-2014 academic year to assist current full-time students with the cost of education.  Around 70% of these funds were awarded in the form of merit scholarships while the remainder was awarded in the form of grants based on financial need.

Additional funds for this same academic year were received from various sources to include the federal government (over $14 million), state governments (almost $1.5 million) and outside agencies (over $800,000).

These various sources of funding help W&J families reduce the overall cost of attendance with many awards being renewed annually.  With such a high percentage of our graduates completing their degrees in four years (94%), families are reassured that their undergraduate investment will involve a standard four year commitment, allowing students to enter the workforce on time.
