How much is the average tuition after financial aid is applied for out of state residents?
Whitworth University
Since we are not a state university, our tuition is the same for in-state and out-of-state students - $47,700 for the 2022-23. That's a big number, but not the most important number, because this year's incoming students received, on average, over $35,000 in scholarships and grants. So, my advice is to apply for admission and submit your FAFSA to any school you're interested in. Then, after receiving financial aid you can compare net cost to net cost. Often, the net cost for students to attend Whitworth is less than to attend in-state schools.
