Estimated expenses

Is WWU affordable? We know it is!

Naturally, if you're choosing a college, you need to look at the price tag. But it's equally important that you then look past it, to the bottom line—because your out-of-pocket cost is what truly counts. 

Each family situation is unique, and until you apply for financial aid and factor in the merit scholarships you've earned, you won't know what your actual cost to attend WWU will be. 

So look past the price tag—and remember that financial aid makes the difference. 

Is community college cheaper?

Starting at a community college may not save you money. If you transfer to WWU after the first two years, your out-of-pocket expense could be more than $4,000 higher than if you attended WWU all four years.

If you are thinking of starting at community college, take a look at the comparison of expenses.
