Undergraduate Tuition and Scholarships
An excellent undergraduate education is a lifelong investment in yourself. Who you become as a person and a professional will be shaped by not only a strong education in the classroom and real-world experience in the field, but also through the mentors, peers, and connections you make during this time. Wheelock College tries to make our high-quality, private education accessible to as many students as possible, and our Office of Financial Aid works with all students and their families to develop plans for achieving their educational goals.
Wheelock annually awards more than $18 million in financial assistance, $10.7 million of which is provided directly by Wheelock as scholarships, grants, and loans. Additional assistance is distributed from federal and state sources. Please visit our financial aid page for more information.
Current Wheelock scholarships and grants include:
- First-year merit scholarships: $14,000-19,000/year
- First-year grants: $12,000/year (for all first-year students not receiving a merit scholarship)
