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

The WITS Title IV School Code is 042652. Click here for helpful tips for filling out a FAFSA.

While the total cost of the degree varies from student to student, for most students, the total cost of the degree ranges between $19,000 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. For the 24-25 academic year only, the FAFSA application became available on January 1st. 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.
