Financial Aid

Southwestern believes in investing in our students.  Whether you are a First-Year, Transfer, or Continuing student - making the Southwestern Experience possible through a comprehensive offering of merit scholarships and need-based financial aid for great students like you is our goal.

For a world-class liberal arts education at one of the best schools in the country, Southwestern is a great value. And when comparing college costs, make sure you’re looking at the bottom line. Tuition at public universities may seem lower at first glance, but when you factor in financial aid and graduation rates, it can be quite a different story.

Aid packages can include need- and merit-based scholarships, work-study plans, grants, and loans. Read profiles of some of our aid recipients, and learn how it helped these families afford a Southwestern education.
