New York Times columnist Ron Lieber praises Wooster for its exceptional combination of quality faculty, affordability, and undergraduate research in his book, The Price You Pay for College. Lieber devotes an entire chapter to answering How the College of Wooster Puts It All Together, highlighting Wooster’s up-front attitude in helping prospective students understand the financial package they will receive and the satisfaction students get from faculty mentorship.

Financial Aid Process for Early Decision Candidates

The 2024-2025 FAFSA will not be available during the Early Decision application cycle. Since we still want to provide financial aid estimates to applicants, Early Decision applicants interested in a need-based financial aid estimate should submit the CSS Profile by November 1, 2023, using Wooster’s CSS code of 1134. We will begin mailing early estimates on November 15, 2023.
