Estimated Annual Cost of Attendance for First-Year Undergraduates

A printable PDF version of this page can be found here.
 
The table below shows the 2016-17 estimated expenses for first-year undergraduate students at the University of Washington's three campuses. After accounting for grant and scholarship aid, UW students (particularly resident undergraduates) often pay far less than the total expenses shown here. In 2014-15 (the most recent year for which net price data is available), the published price for resident undergraduates at Seattle was $27,112, whereas the net price for first-time, resident undergraduates at Seattle was $9,744.

**   Student-led committees approved all fees under this header, except the NSEOF (see below), and are responsible for recommending fee changes to the Board of Regents for approval.  Student representatives provide support recommendations for the NSEOF and the administration recommends fee changes to the Board of Regents for approval.  Please note that many students pay fees beyond the ones presented here, such as course fees (the cost of which varies by discipline), fees for student insurance, international program fees, and fees for WashPIRG and WSA.
