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.

There are many financial aid opportunities that can help you pay for a private university education. As an accepted student at WPU, you are automatically considered for merit and need-based financial aid (with a completed FAFSA).
