  • These costs are estimates for the 2020-21 academic year. Tuition and updated costs will be provided and billed for once tuition is set in late April.
  • Students can review their financial aid information on their MyWCU under "View my Awards". Keep in mind if a student is awarded work study they should not include this in their calculation since work study is not applied to the bill.
  • * If you are enrolling in a different number of credits, a professional graduate program, or a doctorate degree program, please review the cost information on the Bursar's website.
