Financial Aid

Financial aid is a grant, scholarship, loan or employment opportunity which assists students with their educational expenses. Most financial aid is awarded on the basis of financial need, or the difference between the cost of education (tuition, fees, books, transportation, etc.), and the amount parents and/or students can contribute toward these expenses. Westmoreland participates in several state and federal financial aid programs. CLICK HERE for your Financial Aid To Do List.
