In September 2020, Whitman College announced the Whitman Tuition Commitment.
“We want to help make a Whitman education a reality for hardworking students—regardless of family income,” says Director of Admission Adam Miller. “That’s not new. But what is new is we’re stepping up in challenging times to give extra financial support to students who live in Washington state.”
What is the Whitman Tuition Commitment? It means if an applicant’s family earns less than $80,000 a year, Whitman will guarantee their full tuition will be covered by scholarships and grants if they’re admitted.
“We know paying for college can be a major strain on families, and we’re happy to provide our talented students with generous financial aid awards, based on their unique needs,” Miller says.
