Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Tuition
In-State Tuition In-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who meet the state's or institution's residency requirements. In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.

Out-of-State Tuition Out-of-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who do not meet the state’s or institution’s residency requirements.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.78 Average Rating
Since it is a private college, it is more expensive than public or state schools. However, all the teachers are excellent and are willing to help all students.
Kaylee from Wartburg, TN
tennessee wesleyan is a pretty expensive school but i believe it's worth every cent. it's a small campus but you have all the free tutoring, free clubs(minus t-shirt prices), free convocational, and you get a free membership to the ymca located down the road from twc as long as you are a student. and for the easily stressed students, the family counceling center a couple of blocks off campus offers 3 free sessions per semester, so if you don't feel you can talk to the professors, you can go there and get everything off your chest. twc offers alot of freebies and the price of tuition is considerably reasonable when you look at everything this college has to offer.
Brandi from Tellico Plains, TN
The classes are small, giving you more one-on-one time with the professor.
Dwayne from Vinton, VA
90% of all students receive financial aid. At $500 per normal semester hour and $210 per summer semester hour, this school is already affordable. Most aid covers %50 or more of tuition.
