How Do I Apply for Financial Aid?
A quality private education doesn’t have to break the bank. It doesn’t have to be difficult either. Nearly 100% of our students are awarded some type of financial aid or scholarship. Our goal is to make your dreams achievable.
WPU offers many scholarships and awards, but you need to first submit a FAFSA to determine your eligibility.
