Wheeling Jesuit University will be offering a lower tuition cost for commuters this fall.

The Father Clifford Lewis S.J. Scholars Program is named after the first Jesuit who came to Wheeling. It will give commuter students from 12 counties in three states the opportunity to learn at WJU.

Commuters who qualify can attend WJU for $8,250 per year.

The new program will put Wheeling Jesuit's commuter tuition in line with costs at public colleges and universities.

"I truly believe in higher education,” said Dr. Debra Townsley, president, Wheeling Jesuit University. “I truly believe it changes people's lives. It changed my life many years ago, and I just think if we can help people achieve their goal of higher education, it's within our mission. It's why we were founded.”

The commuter rate applies to qualifying students from Brooke, Hancock, Marshall, Ohio and Wetzel counties in West Virginia. Belmont, Guernsey, Harrison, Jefferson and Monroe counties in Ohio. And also Washington and Greene counties in Pennsylvania.
