How to Pay for College


A college education is one of the best investments that you can make, but we understand that paying for college can be a challenge. At WKU Glasgow, there are people and resources to help you achieve your goals. Nearly all students are eligible for some form of financial assistance. In fact, over 90% of the students who applied for financial aid in recent years received an award offer. It’s important to research your options early so you can make smart decisions on how to fund your education and save money.

Our knowledgeable financial aid counselors are available to assist you. They can meet with you one-on-one to discuss your financial needs and expenses, explain aid programs, and explore scholarship opportunities.
