Affordability. We know that’s one of the most important factors in choosing a college.
The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is proud to offer the most affordable tuition among all schools in the UW System — and a list of amenities that will save you significantly on textbooks, transportation and more.
When you’re comparing college costs, it’s important to consider more than the listed tuition and fees. Your out-of-pocket expenses can vary greatly depending on financial aid eligibility, as well as what’s included with tuition, fees, and housing expenses.
At UW-Whitewater, we’re committed to keeping your education affordable. Including textbooks in your tuition and covering some of your everyday living expenses saves you and your family money — and these extras are one more way we support you academically and socially.
