Cost of Attendance

The cost of attending UW-Whitewater varies based on individual student circumstances.  The Financial Aid Office bases the award package on an estimated budget, which includes expenses directly billed by the university (tuition, residence hall, meal plan) and non-billed education expenses (transportation and miscellaneous personal expenses).  The Cost of Attendance is only used for financial aid purposes and will not necessarily reflect actual charges.  The Cost Estimator provides a better picture of actual charges.  The Student Accounts Office also publishes actual charges once they are available (usually mid-July for the upcoming fall term).

Explanation of Terms

Tuition/Fees: The average cost of tuition and fees for the typical student.  Tuition costs vary based on enrollment status and residency status (WI, MN, Non-Resident, Return to Wisconsin).  Fees vary based on individual courses.

Housing/Food: A reasonable cost for room and food for the academic year.  These costs vary by individual student choices.  Housing is charged by the university for residence halls or off-campus housing contracted with the university.  Meals are charged by the university if the student has signed up for an on or off campus meal plan.  Students living at home will have a lower budget.  Independent students will have a higher budget.

Supplies: The average cost of books and supplies for a typical student.  Most books are obtained from textbook rental for undergraduate students.  Graduate students must purchase all books.

Transportation: The average cost of travel expenses for the typical student.

Miscellaneous Expenses:  This is an estimate of costs for everyday living including laundry, cell phone, entertainment, clothing, etc.  Independent students will have a higher budget amount for this item.

Residency is determined by the Admissions Office. Minnesota residents and non-residents whose parents or grandparents graduated from UW-Whitewater could qualify for a different tuition level. Contact the Admissions Office for more information.

Tuition and supplies are prorated for part time enrollment.

Direct Costs are paid directly to the university, except in the case of off-campus housing paid to a landlord.  Indirect Costs are mainly everyday living expenses.
