WesternU educates compassionate, competent health care professionals who are willing to go the extra mile for their patients, treating them as people instead of diseases. Faculty and administrators here believe in teaching by example, and exemplify the University's humanistic philosophy by offering personal attention to each individual student.
Students can expect the same treatment from WesternU that a patient should expect from an able health professional. This is especially true at the Financial Aid Office, where students can depend on friendly professionals who can answer questions, assist with paperwork and help identify possible funding resources. Financial aid counselors are available to meet one-on-one. They will take the time to examine each individual financial situation, and help to generate ideas for the best funding solution for students and their families.
Students should investigate the various federal, state, and other public and commercial funding sources available to help pay for their education. Additionally, there is another major sector that provides crucial support to WesternU students. It is the world of private philanthropy: those individuals, corporations, and foundations who willingly accept the responsibility of serving as good citizens of the larger society. These benefactors contribute to assisting students in achieving their educational goals and ultimately to the quality of health care delivered to the public.
