Paying for College

At Wayland Baptist University, we understand that tuition cost and financial aid are vital factors in choosing where to attend college. We also understand that the value received in exchange for that cost is ultimately even more important.

Through our commitment to make education affordable we are able to transform your college expense into a valuable educational investment.

Financial Aid includes any scholarships, grants, or loans awarded to you to help offset the cost of education. Nearly all of our students receive some form of financial aid. Thanks to the contributions of so many who believe in the value of Christian higher education, Wayland is among the most affordable of any accredited, private universities in the nation.

The FASFA ( Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®))must be filled out each year by every student.  This will determine if your student is eligible for grants or loans.  WBU has many scholarships available to our students.  Please check with the Financial Aid office on the process of applying for a scholarship.
