Affording Your Wilson Education

Our students and families find that a Wilson College education is affordable. There is financial aid for virtually every family. We have been recognized by U.S.News & World Report's America's Best Colleges for more than 10 years as a "Best Value". This means that you receive a quality education at a great price.

Many families assume that they cannot afford a private education. Families need to look beyond the published tuition and consider the the fact that Wilson offers significant financial aid resources that will make a private education affordable -- perhaps even more affordable than what a public university can offer!  You can graduate in four years, enroll in small classes, be challenged by a dedicated faculty.  You will be prepared for the job market or for graduate or professional school.  More than 95% of Wilson students receive some type of financial aid. Often our students tell us that it is actually less expensive.
