Student Financial Aid

Working with you to make education affordable.
 

At WITS, we will work with you to make education affordable. Students who meet the admissions criteria of WITS are not denied acceptance because of financial need. Every effort is made to ensure that eligible students are able to receive the financial aid needed to attend WITS.

This first step in applying for any kind of financial aid is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

To learn more about the FAFSA application process, or to complete the FAFSA application, visit https://fafsa.ed.gov/.

The WITS Title IV School Code is 042652.

While the total cost of the degree varies from student to student, for most students, the total cost of the degree ranges between $18,000 and $23,000. Our Net Price Calculator can help you estimate costs. 

The FAFSA application becomes available on October 1st for the following academic year. The application should be filled out as soon as possible. 

WITS participates in the Federal Pell Grant Program. WITS does not participate in federal loan programs.

For more information on financial aid at WITS, please see the FINANCIAL AID HANDBOOK or contact Mrs. Tova Rappaport, Director of Financial Aid, at trappaport@wits.edu, or 410-358-6560 / 410-913-5688.




Maryland State Aid 

 

The State of Maryland offers needs-based and merit-based scholarships, grants, and awards. There are also scholarships for specific fields and populations. To learn about Maryland state financial aid programs, visit http://mhec.maryland.gov/preparing/Pages/FinancialAid/index.aspx

A student who files the FAFSA and indicates a Maryland state school is automatically considered for many state financial aid programs.

However, some programs require additional applications. For more information on specific programs, visit http://mhec.maryland.gov/preparing/Pages/FinancialAid/descriptions.aspx and http://mhec.maryland.gov/preparing/Pages/College411/finassisttoc.aspx

 

The deadline to file for state awards is March 1st for the following academic year.

Senatorial and Legislative awards have a separate application process and may have different deadlines. See the above links and contact the offices of your state senators or delegates for more information.
