Estimated cost of attendance

These tables show the estimated cost of attendance, or COA. The estimated cost of attendance is used solely for financial aid awarding and includes tuition, fees, room, board, books, supplies, personal expenses, travel and loan fees and is estimated based upon averages for each category. These numbers are not reflective of actual or projected costs. Actual tuition, fees, and university housing costs are published each year (generally after July 1) and are subject to approval by the WMU Board of Trustees. Factors considered are residency status, class level and admission status, planned enrollment, and housing options of on-campus, off-campus or living with parents.

Financial aid eligibility is based in part on COA. Financial aid may not exceed the COA.

For a more specific estimate of your costs, use the estimated cost of attendance calculator.

Net price calculator

For an estimate of your net price, use the net price calculator provided by the U.S. Department of Education. A net price is your cost of attendance, including tuition, fees, book and other costs, minus your estimated financial aid. Please note: calculators are tools designed to offer you an estimate of your costs. Your actual costs will differ. See the net price calculator for more details.
