    Washington College is a private institution, so it is pretty pricey; however, the education that you will be getting is worth it!

    It is a very expensive college. That being said, they are VERY generous with financial aid if you need it and/or if you work hard. I would not be attending this school without their wonderful financial aid.

    I am not going to lie, WC is not cheap. When including the tuition, room and board, books, supplies and other things that college needs, it is no joke. However, WC has a very generous financial package just waiting for its top students which covers more than half of tuition! This to me was perfect and totally won me over! What most people do not realize at WC, is that the reason why the tuition is so high is because you pay for something that is truly invaluable at any other College or University. YOU CONTROL YOUR EDUCATION! You get one-on-one time with your Professors, and the Professors know you by first and last name! The student-to-faculty ratio is 12:1. That is priceless. Honestly, you will NEVER see the type of education Washington College students get at any other College in the world. WC is only one of a kind place.
