Have you ever wondered what happens to your application or essay once you press "Send"? Do you want to know more about how to apply for financial aid?
The Offices of Admission and Financial Aid are here to answer these questions and any others you might have regarding your enrollment at Whittier College.
There is a full staff of admission counselors and financial aid counselors available to work with you and your family. Each admission counselor is assigned to work with students from specific territories. We travel to many states, a few countries, and nearly 600 high schools, spreading the Whittier word. Your admission counselors will be the "first reader" of your file and will assist you throughout the application process, ultimately "presenting you" to the selection committee. So we encourage you to contact your counselor and become his or her positive partner throughout the Whittier admission process.
And if you have questions or concerns about how to afford a Whittier education, our financial aid staff is similarly available to help you navigate the possibilities for financial assistance. Remember, 87% of our students receive some form of aid and we are here to assist you in obtaining whatever you may be eligible to receive in order to attend Whittier College.
