Paying for College

  • Print

At Westwood we help students understand their college costs and how to pay for them. It is rare that students applying to college are able to pay their full tuition without utilizing student grants and loans.  Lack of financial resources alone should not be a barrier to continuing your education.  While the primary responsibility for meeting the costs of education rests with individual students and their families, many student finance resources are available to assist those students who, without such aid, would be unable to attend Westwood.
