Financial Aid Made Easier

At Whitman College, making college more affordable is our top priority. We provide generous need-based aid that can cover the entire cost of tuition and even more! Additionally, we award merit- and talent-based scholarships to students who have excelled in either academics or outside activities. We understand that there’s a lot to think about when applying for financial aid, so we make the process easy.
