Tuition and Costs

Each year, the annual tuition, room and board, and student fees are carefully assessed in order to ensure that the cost and value of a Whittier College education remain equitable, allow growth in program and educational opportunities, and remain financially feasible. Tuition, fees, and room and board charges are set in the Spring for the following academic year, and approved by the Board of Trustees. A schedule of charges may be obtained directly from the Business Office.

The cost of attendance for Whittier College's 2016 -17 academic year is follows:

Tuition $44,184
Fees $590
Room (double) $7,198
Board (15-flex) $6,130

Whittier College recognizes the serious financial commitment a college education represents to students and their families. More than ever, we are fully committed to assisting students who demonstrate financial need through access to private college scholarships, federal and state grants, and other loan programs.
