The Unique Value of a Wheaton College Education

Students and families seeking a high-quality college degree that’s deeply rooted in Christian values have many options to consider. Yet no other institution in the country can match Wheaton College’s blend of a top-notch liberal arts curriculum with Christ-centered and whole-person focused programs. Both experiences enable Wheaton alumni to maximize their God-given talents and provide exceptional leadership at home, at church, in the marketplace, and in the wider world.

Exceptional Value at a Competitive Cost

What’s more—we achieve all of this at a remarkably competitive cost:

Right off the bat, Wheaton College subsidizes 20 percent of each student’s full tuition rate, thanks to support from the institution’s endowment.

  • Our resources bring that cost down further for 88 percent of first-year students, with the average financial aid package received totaling $29,000.
  • The average net price of a Wheaton education is less than the average of the top 60 National Liberal Arts Colleges ranked by U.S. News and World Report.
  • Wheaton graduates’ loan default rate is 0.9 percent — far below the national average of 9.3 percent.

Wheaton Changes Lives

Wheaton College is on the list of the nation’s Colleges that Change Lives for good reason—because that’s exactly what happens here. During their years on campus, Wheaton students form lifelong Christian friendships, deepen their understanding of the world, and expand their faith. When they graduate, they emerge with the financial freedom to grow into and thrive as the person God calls them to become.
