Costs, Scholarships & Financial Aid

At a time when universities across the country were raising costs, we actually lowered ours. That’s our dedication to value in education.

At William Peace University, we believe that a quality college education should be accessible to anyone who is committed to pursuing one. As one of the most affordable, private schools in the country, WPU represents an outstanding all-around value in higher education as well as an important investment in yourself and your future.

There are many financial aid opportunities to help offset the cost of a private university education. Every accepted student is automatically considered for merit and need-based aid (with a submitted FAFSA).
