Costs & Payments
A college education is likely to be one of the most significant investments you and your family will ever make. Wheaton's comprehensive fee for the 2013-2014 academic year is $56,574. This includes tuition, room and board, and student activity fee.
Financial aid awarded by the college including institutional merit and scholarship awards are disbursed to a student's account at the end of the add/drop period for each semester. Disbursements, which are run daily, apply loans, grants, and scholarship funds to a student's account. All required documentation must be received in order for funds to disburse. Students can check to ensure that all required financial documents are received through their Inside Wheaton account.
If you are a Pell recipient who expects to have a credit balance on your student account, you may request an early refund of your Pell fund for textbook purchases.
Wheaton offers a number of options for paying the balance due, from low cost educational loans to budget payment plans. Please refer to the links on the right for detailed information about costs and payment options.
Please bear in mind that these options are not mutually exclusive: many families have found that a combination of payment and loan plans works especially well for them. Tuition Management System, our budget payment plan company, offers a free tool called BorrowSmart: the on-line calculator that can by used by families considering a customized payment plan/loan option.
