You have already started your collegiate journey. Why not finish it successfully at W&J? We will provide you with as much financial support as possible.

  • Transfer students qualify for the same merit-based scholarships as first-year students, including W&J Thrive, our highest scholarship awarded to student leaders.
  • Learn more about W&J’s financial aid.
  • Are you a member of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK)? You'll receive our $1,000 PTK Grant too.

Uncommon Experiences = Superior Outcomes.

  • Customize your education in two areas of study with more than 80 academic programs to choose from.
  • Receive financial support for pre-professional opportunities, including the Magellan Project, our signature, create-your-own research experience that will take you anywhere in the world.
  • Become professionally ready through outstanding advising, mentoring, and ethical leadership training.
  • Our faculty and the staff in the Center for Professional Pathways will help you the right post-graduation fit, often through connections with 16,000+ W&J alumni world-wide.

When commencement day arrives, you will be prepared to lead in your career field and community.

Find Your Place. Find Your People.

At W&J, we want to learn about:

  • Who you are.
  • What dreams you have.
  • How we can help you get to where you want to go next.

W&J fosters a supportive and diverse culture in which all members of the community are valued, included, and are able to realize their full potential.

Our faculty, staff, and alumni are actively involved with our students, ready to offer support, guidance, resources, and networking opportunities to help you succeed.

Your community is here. Your future is too.
