Making the most of a Western education means opening your mind, learning by doing, enriching the community, and shaping an academic adventure that is uniquely yours. You aren’t just getting an education; you are building a resume and a foundation for lifelong success.
For years, Western has made it a top priority to assist the students who need the most financial support. Nearly 85% of Washington residents who are designated low or lower-middle income by the FAFSA receive need-based grants and waivers that exceed the full cost of tuition and fees. In other words, the vast majority of lower income students are able to cover their full tuition and fees with money that doesn't have to be paid back!
