Our financial aid team is always happy to assist students and parents in navigating the financial aid application process.

We do our absolute best to get every student the financial assistance needed to make an education at Walnut Hill College possible. This assistance can come in the form of loans, grants, and scholarships, and our team works with each student to determine which options are right for them. The Office of Financial Aid is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
