Regardless of your financial standing, we are committed to making education attainable for you. As a residential college, Wartburg supports the concept of a socially, culturally, and economically diverse student body and believes this diversity better prepares students for society. The college provides financial aid to enable students from all segments of society to attend. Wartburg believes that students should be able to select a school for academic rather than financial reasons. It admits students on academic and personal promise, not the ability to pay.
Planning in advance is important when preparing for college. Financial aid is intended to supplement, not replace, a family’s resources. Colleges, government agencies, and special programs that award aid expect you and your family to contribute as much as possible toward college costs. Members of the Wartburg Financial Aid staff are happy to discuss your questions and concerns about financial aid.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) now uses the method of prior-prior year (PPY) for reporting tax information. This allows students and their families to fill out the FAFSA earlier. You can complete your FAFSA for the upcoming school year as early as October 1 each year at www.FAFSA.ed.gov. Our office highly recommends using IRS Data Retrieval to ensure correct tax information is used.

Wartburg offers financial aid estimates for students who apply and are accepted before December 1 of their senior year in high school.
