Calculating Cost

The cost of your degree depends on many factors, including:

  • Where you live
  • Whether you will take classes online or on campus
  • Scholarships or student employment you receive
  • Time to complete

In addition, WOU many change tuition and fees between today and when you finish your program, changing the overall cost estimate. The total cost of attendance will depend on the number of credits taken, books and supplies needed for different courses, and personal spending habits.
