Tuition Rebates and Scholarships

Wade College Tuition Rebates (Non-repayable funds)
Wade College is committed to enrolling a diverse and talented student population. To accomplish this goal, Wade College offers various tuition rebates that are awarded on the basis of merit. Students who wish to be considered for these tuition rebates must provide all required documentation prior to any deadlines established by the Office of Admissions and the Office of Financial Services. Failure of the student to meet any tuition rebate requirement will result in forfeiture of the award.

Wade College tuition rebates can be combined with any other merit-scholarships and/or non-need-based financial assistance, as long as the combined total does not exceed the total cost of a Wade College education.
