Financial Aid and Scholarships
We understand a Wheaton College education is a substantial investment. But we want you to know the college is equally invested in making a Wheaton education within your reach.
We review all applicants for merit scholarships and have designated one of our highest transfer scholarships of $40,000 to Massachusetts Transfer Guarantee students.
Aid is also awarded to address financial need. Wheaton offers need-based awards funded by the College’s own financial resources, as well as from federal and state funding sources.
This financial assistance at Wheaton is awarded on the basis of demonstrated need. “Need” is determined by the financial information that you and your family provide on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Wheaton offers limited need-based financial aid to international students based on a combination of financial need and academic performance.
International applicants who wish to be considered for financial aid must complete the International Student Financial Aid Application after you apply for admission to Wheaton. This form will be located in your admission portal and is specific to you.
We encourage you to visit our Financial Aid Process & Deadlines page for more information. A need-based package may include a merit scholarship, grants, loans or work award. The Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) provides all the resources you need to plan for this important investment.
