Estimated Cost of Attendance|Student Financial Aid

Estimated Cost of Attendance

Funding your education is an important investment with lifelong dividends. UW consistently ranks among the best values in the country based on the quality and breadth of education opportunities available, our low tuition rates for both resident and non-resident students, and our amazing undergraduate scholarship programs.

Most colleges and universities calculate "cost of attendance" based on tuition, fees, room, board and anticipated book and personal expenses for the current school year.

For less than full-time attendance and other questions concerning cost of attendance, please refer to the Fee Book or contact the Student Financial Aid Office.

Standard summer budget is based on halftime enrollment and Room and Board for 12 weeks.

NOTE: Individual summer budgets will vary based on the number of weeks that the student is attending class.




For detailed information regarding cost of attendance, please refer to the Fee Book.

NOTE: "Need" is what we estimate your cost of attendance to be, minus your expected family contribution. Once we've determined how much money you're going to need, we go to work to create a financial aid package for you. You may be surprised at the amount we estimate your cost of attendance to be. This is because we take into account not only the price of tuition and books, but also the cost of rent, food, clothing, travel and other essentials that you're going to need for the year.
