That's why we're offering 惠特曼的 Early 金融援助 Guarantee—so you don't have to wait until you are admitted to start thinking about the cost. In fact, you can find out before you even apply!

With this early guarantee, you can see how much money in scholarships and financial aid you’ll be awarded from Whitman if you are admitted. 

We’re happy to give you and your family extra time to see if Whitman works for you. 

Early 金融援助 Guarantees are available for high school seniors—yearly from July 1 through Dec. 15.
