Each college or university determines an estimate of how much it will cost for you to attend the school, including tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, personal expenses, transportation, and miscellaneous expenses. This is your Cost of Attendance, and varies from one institution to another. See How Financial Aid Works to understand how the Cost of Attendance impacts your financial need.

Our goal is to help you afford to attend Wilkes University.
The key is to apply for financial aid. Even if you don't think you qualify, give it a chance.

Fact: Over 96 percent of our students receive some form of financial aid.

Fact: Last year, we provided more than $19 million to our students. (If you add federal and state aid, that number jumps to more than $23 million!)

Fact: The majority of undergraduate students receive merit-based scholarships ranging from $6,000-$15,000 annually. In addition, Wilkes Need-Based Grants are available to students with good records of achievement and performance in high school or college who demonstrate financial need within university designated ranges. Awards range considerably from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. These grants are supported by funds received from endowment income, gifts from alumni and friends of the University and the operating budget.
