Whatever your degree, Case Western Reserve has the financial aid to make your world-class education affordable.
But what sets Case Western Reserve University apart? Our unique urban campus. It's situated in Cleveland, Ohio's vibrant University Circle area, where you're surrounded by the nation's best museums, cultural venues, medical centers and research institutes, just 20 minutes from downtown.
