WHAT WILL IT COST TO ATTEND UW-WHITEWATER?

WHAT WILL IT COST TO ATTEND UW-WHITEWATER?

Financial planning for college should begin with an estimate of what the total cost will be for one academic year at UW-Whitewater. While fees (tuition) and room and board expenses will represent the majority of the expenses, there are also expenses for books, laundry, personal supplies, entertainment, and travel. If realistic budgetary allowances for such items are made now, the final financial projections will be more accurate and useful. Allowances should also be made for increases in fees because of inflation and policy changes.
