Financial Aid

Working with you to make education affordable

 At WITS/MAALOT, we will work with you to make education affordable. Students who meet the admissions criteria of WITS/MAALOT are not denied admission because of financial need. Every effort is made to ensure that eligible students are able to receive the financial aid needed to attend WITS/MAALOT.

This first step in applying for any kind of financial aid is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

To learn more about the FAFSA application process, or to complete the FAFSA application, visit https://fafsa.ed.gov/.

The WITS Title IV School Code is 042652.

Financial aid is currently not available for the Israel Studies Abroad Program offered in conjunction with Gratz College.

The FAFSA application becomes available on October 1st for the following academic year. The application should be filled out as soon as possible. 

For more information on financial aid at WITS/Maalot, please see the Financial Aid Handbook.

A student who files the FAFSA and indicates a Maryland state school is automatically considered for many state financial aid programs. However, some programs require additional applications.
