Putting your dreams within reach—and providing a little help for your budget

At Waubonsee, our diverse population of talented, self-motivated students refuses to let anything get in the way of their education, their career goals and their future.

While our costs are competitive to start with, many of our students also receive one or more of forms of financial aid to help meet the expense.

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