• We encourage 15 hours per semester to graduate in 4 years.
  • Estimated costs of attendance are costs that are paid to UWG, such as tuition, fees, meal plans, and on-campus housing.
  • Tuition costs will vary based on the number of credit hours in which the student enrolls. 12 or more credit hours is considered full-time enrollment.
  • All freshmen living in a residence hall must select at least the Basic Membership meal plan ($1,676). Refer to Campus Dining Services for more details at Dine West.
  • Books are not included on a student's invoice. However, since students usually purchase books for class, we included an estimated amount to assist when estimating the Cost of Attendance.
  • All amounts provided are based on 2017-2018 Costs and are subject to change for the 2018-2019 academic year. Financial Aid is typically awarded and available for review in May.
