Estimated costs of attendance are costs that are paid to UWG, such as tuition, fees, meal plans, and on-campus housing.

  • We encourage 15 hours per semester to graduate in 4 years.
  • 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 ($1,760). 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 2020-2021 costs and are subject to change for the 2021-2022 academic year. Financial Aid is typically awarded and available for review in May.
  • All financial aid is awarded based on eligibility. Learn more at westga.edu/finaid
  • Cost-of-attendance for Graduate students may vary by program please visit UWG's Graduate Admission's Cost page for more information.
