Financial Aid & Scholarships

Western Illinois University has instituted a cost guarantee program for transfer students. Beginning Fall 2008, transfer students who earn an associate's degree and transfer to WIU the following semester will receive the previous year's cost guarantee rates. Western was the first university in the state to offer this guarantee, and the only university in the state to include fees and room and board in that guarantee.

In addition to the cost guarantee program, scholarship programs are available including the Bertha Greishaber Fink Scholarship , the Dorothy Hanson Scholarship, and the Norman & Carmelita Tetter Scholarship. One application and set of recommendations are required.

Other forms of financial assistance, including loans, grants, and scholarships, are available through the Financial Aid Office.
