    It is expensive to attend, HOWEVER, Whitworth has consistently ranked among the top 100 universities in the country to offer financial aid to its students. The average financial aid package is close to $25,000 with many students receiving free tuition.

    The school is expensive but Whitworth does a great job at awarding scholarships and really helping out those who cannot afford it on their own. One of my closest friends actually received a full ride based on merit. Another friend had it almost entirely paid for because she came from a low-income family. I was incredibly blessed to have a generous family who helped me but with that, I also got almost half of my schooling paid for by the University just for my grades and achievements. They want you to be at Whitworth and I think for most people, it is possible to make it happen. Ultimately too, you cannot put a price on the quality of education you get there because it's about so much more that just head knowledge. You come out changed for the good and empowered to impact the world.

    Whitworth has a very daunting starting price for tuition, but offers many academic scholarships for incoming and transfer students that makes attendance much more accessible. There are also many job opportunities on campus as well as work-study options for students. The price, though high, is justified by the quality of the education at Whitworth. The professors provide the best education around and are truly invested in their students, ensuring that the money spent on an education is truly going toward educating students and not going to waste.

    The price tag for Whitworth is well worth the expense. At some state schools, many kids are going there to minor in alcohol and not take school seriously. This school is for the serious student.

    At Whitworth you are certainly not a number. Classes are small and teachers get to know you for who you are. I don't know of a different university where a teacher will help you when you are in financial trouble by reaching into their own pockets. There are also professors that invite their classes to their house for dinner.
