Financial Aid & Scholarships

Washington & Jefferson College can be an affordable option for students looking for a world-class liberal arts education due to our generous merit and need-based financial assistance programs. We will work with you on a one-on-one basis to understand your family’s financial situation and to explore all of your financial aid options including eligibility for scholarships and grants, loans, tax benefits for education, payment methods and tuition payment plans.

Through our self-serve Net Price Calculator, you can get an estimate of the cost of attending W&J. We also encourage you to review W&J’s On-Time Graduation Guarantee which promises that all students who meet the College’s academic expectations will be able to graduate in four years.

To best serve you, we recommend that all admitted students apply for financial aid so eligibility can be determined for the various programs available.

We believe that financial circumstances should not stand in the way of receiving the best education. Our financial aid packages make W&J competitive with other private and public institutions.

To learn more about your financial aid options, please contact any one of our counselors with questions regarding the financial aid process, interpreting your financial aid package, or ways we can help you invest in your future. The Financial Aid FAQ also is available to help answer your questions.
