In determining financial need or the aid for which students may be eligible to receive, the Office of Student Financial Services takes into consideration the cost of attendance at Wilberforce University and the families ability to pay based on the information students provide on the FAFSA.
The cost of attendance at Wilberforce University includes allowances for actual charges or direct cost to attend Wilberforce, such as tuition and fees, room, board, as well as, indirect variable costs associated with attending the University, such as books and supplies, transportation and personal miscellaneous expenses.
For eligible students who apply in a timely manner, financial aid awards or packages may consist of several funding sources of aid. Once the information is reviewed and eligibility determined, a financial aid award notification with detailed amounts and types of financial aid a student is eligible to receive will be forwarded to the student/parents. Financial Aid Packages may consist of grants, scholarships, work aid, and loans.
