Scholarships & Grants
We are committed to making Southern Wesleyan accessible and affordable for all students and their families. We do that through a variety of financial aid opportunities—including merit-based aid (like scholarships), need-based aid (like grants and student work study employment) and tuition discounts. One hundred percent of first-year students at SWU receive aid of various kinds (the average financial aid package for first-year students is $24,998), demonstrating our commitment to helping families identify and obtain financial aid resources and opportunities that make a valuable Christian education attainable.
Federal & State Aid
Along with institutional aid options, there are scholarships, grants, and loan options available through federal and state government aid. Federal aid provides need-based grants, low interest loan options, as well as a federally-funded work study program. State aid provides South Carolina students with scholarships, grants, and loan options as well.
