Costs and Financial Aid

Putting your dreams within reach – and providing a little help for your wallet.

At Waubonsee, our diverse population of talented, self-motivated students refuses to let anything get in the way of their education, career goals and future. While our costs are competitive, many of our students also receive one or more of forms of financial aid to help meet the expense, including:

Because eligibility requirements vary depending on the type of assistance, Waubonsee encourages every student to apply for financial aid. Our supportive staff will help facilitate the application process — determining qualifications, researching availability and assessing the best financial aid solution for you.
