We Strive to make a private liberal arts education possible. Our office is dedicated to helping each family realize the potential of this high quality education. The first responsibility for investing in your college education rests with you and your parents. However, the extraordinary generosity of Wabash alumni enables the College to set tuition at about half the actual annual cost of educating each student. Wabash offers both merit and need-based financial assistance to eligible students who complete the required applications on time.
Our office is available to help families with any questions or concerns they may have. Don't just take our word for it. Take a look at U.S. News & World Report’s Best Buys college rankings and you’ll find that Wabash ranks very high among the “National Liberal Arts Colleges” when it comes to the quality of education relative to the “out of pocket” cost families pay. About two-thirds of Wabash families receive need-based assistance.
"All of the long nights and hours studying were worth it, because I developed the kind of work ethic and discipline that is needed to be successful in whatever I choose to do now that my Wabash days are over." – Jay Horrey '09
