Financial Aid and Scholarships

Western University of Health Sciences provides financial support to recruit and retain outstanding students. No one should think that higher education is beyond his or her reach simply because of cost. With the help of federal, state, institutional and private funded scholarships and awards, students can achieve their educational goals for the future. Many WesternU colleges and programs offer incoming students recruitment scholarships based on the strength of a student’s admissions application and interview as well as their contributions to the community. A separate application is not required. When a student is accepted into the program and selected for a scholarship, the offer will be made at the same time that the admissions offer is made.
