We understand that families are often curious, and may be overwhelmed, when it comes to projecting college costs. Affordability and Educational Excellence make a Wooster education a great value. There’s a reason The College of Wooster is singled out by college experts for our affordability and why each year we are listed as a Best Value College. With a test-blind process for merit scholarships and a commitment to transparency on costs, Wooster provides families with the information they need to understand how affordable a quality liberal arts education can be.
The College Scholar Award recognizes exceptional academic and extracurricular achievement among the 6,000 applications Wooster receives annually. The Scholarship Committee awards the highest academically qualified students, those who typically fall in the top 5% of the applicant pool. We recommend that students applying for this award rank in the top 15% of their high school class. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and complete an interview with an admissions or alumni representative.
