    Whitworth is expensive - there's no doubt about it. They offer nice academic scholarships though, but honestly, Whitworth is so special that it makes the price tag worth it. The people here create a truly unique, loving, accepting, kind community, and the rigor makes Whitworth a great choice academically. We have tons of intramurals, clubs, and opportunities to serve the community, and there is always something going on, whether it's games in the dorms, movies at the rec center, or cookies at the President's house. I would not want to complete my undergraduate degree anywhere else.

    Great education, but definitely a spendy school. But, it is small and that is very nice to be able to get help and have personal connections.

    Although it's very expensive, the education, memories, and growth in faith you receive is well worth the price.

    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.
