Financing Your Undergraduate Education at Wheaton

Your education is an investment in the person God is calling you to become. And at Wheaton, that investment is much more affordable than you might expect. 

Most students at Wheaton pay much less than the full list price. If you’re like 88 percent of our incoming freshmen, your costs will be reduced through a combination of scholarships, grants, and loans.

In fact, we invest millions of dollars in our students every year because we so believe in every step of their journey. Is it your turn?
