Qualify for financial assistance programs and scholarships

On average, Kansas Wesleyan students received $23,015 in financial assistance programs (scholarships, grants, campus employment and student loans) this year.

Graduate in four years instead of five or six

Kansas Wesleyan students work with an academic advisor to create an individualized academic plan to stay on track for graduation in four years. Graduate earlier than you would at most large state institutions, which can provide extra years of salary earned and tuition saved.

Work while attending college

Part-time employment opportunities abound in Salina in a myriad of businesses. A limited number of campus employment opportunities are also available, primarily for sophomores, juniors and seniors. Internships at local businesses can provide a great way to combine earning power, college credit, great work experience and invaluable future employment contacts.

Don’t make assumptions about private education

Most of our students come from middle-income families. In fact, the average parental income is approximately $76,000. Many families with incomes of less than $100,000 qualify for need-based financial assistance.
