Willamette University recognizes that cost may be a concern as you plan to invest in your educational goals.

Addressing how you can finance a quality education may at first seem overwhelming. Taken one step at a time, however, the process does not need to be mysterious or confusing. The staff of the Office of Financial Aid is committed to making the process as simple as possible. We are available to assist you with any questions you may have, help you understand the financial aid programs available, and guide you through the application process.

Financial aid is available to help fill the gap between what you and your family are expected to provide and what it will cost to attend Willamette University. We believe that our generous merit and need based scholarship programs, combined with student loans and part time employment, can make a Willamette University education affordable.
