Estimated Cost of Attendance

The first step in determining your financial need is to calculate the estimated cost of attendance at UW Oshkosh. The Financial Aid Office establishes cost of attendance budgets based on averaged and actual costs from reported data, survey data and Bureau of Labor Statistics data. These budgets include tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, and other expenses.  

Note: Your student account is the best and most accurate statement of direct educational expenses. Student account information and estimated cost of education can be found on TitanWeb.  Students bills generally appear on TitanWeb approximately 2 weeks before the start of an academic term.

Tuition

Tuition is based on full-time enrollment for undergraduate students (12 credits).  It is based on 6 credits for graduate students. The full tuition cost includes segregated fees and is billed on a semester basis.

Books and Supplies

The estimate of books and supplies is based on average cost for undergraduate and graduate students. Your actual costs may be more or less than the average costs based on your course requirements.

Room and Board

There are two housing costs factored into the cost of education. Students living with parents are considered commuter students. Students living on- and off-campus will have housing costs calculated that equal the average of the on-campus housing for the year. Food is also calculated differently for commuter and on- and off-campus students. The cost is updated each year based on the projected increase in the university food services costs.

Personal

Day-to-day living expenses that don't fall into any other category, such as clothing, medical, recreational expenses, toiletries and insurance.

Transportation

Roughly based on trips to school with standard course load.
