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.

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

You are getting a great deal for the money here. This is a big university (part of the University of Washington, Seattle) but it feels like a community college.
Lisa from Kirkland, WA
UWB is very affordable and has many ways to make paying for school not so hard.
Elizabeth from Kenmore, WA
At UW Bothell, you're paying a public school price for a private school education. Of course it's a deal! However, tuition costs keep rising at a ridiculous rate. Sooner or later, we could be paying as much as these private schools.
Avalon from Bothell, WA
College tuition was increased 20% yet our campus is much smaller than the Main Seattle location. A letter was sent to each student saying the Bothell branch was better off financially than its counterparts yet needed to go with the increase regardless.
Sarah from Seattle, WA
Again, the UW is often known for providing near Ivy-league educations for a public school price. How can you argue with that?
Maggie from Ridgefield, WA
There is a gym and classes that come free when you are a UW student. Also, we have a very nice field and we are right next to the wetlands which makes for a nice walk.
Vanessa from Kenmore, WA
I would recommend not buying any new books, just because used ones are much cheaper and also take advantage of the free food! They always have activities with free food! But not as expensive as it would be in a private university :)
Laura from Mukilteo, WA
College is expensive, but I really feel like I am getting my money's worth. I was EXTREMELY hesitant to go to school just because I have to do it completely on loans. UWB is a great value and I feel like with this education I can take my future careers further.
