Your college education will be one of the most important investments of time and money you will ever make–and we are committed to making the financial piece of that investment as affordable for you as possible. That's why Whitman offers a comprehensive, diversified financial aid program that includes scholarships, grants, employment, and loans.

84% of our students receive financial aid. Last year, the average need-based aid award package for Whitman students was $42,800. We also offer merit scholarships of up to $25,000 to high-achieving students.

Please contact us by phone or email if you need help with the financial aid process or would like to talk to us directly about financing your college education.

"The financial aid office at Whitman College was so responsive and solution-oriented. If it weren't for their flexibility and generosity Celena likely would not have been able to attend school there. Thanks to their efforts, and her own hard work, she has the educational opportunity of a lifetime at Whitman."
