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

3.58 Average Rating
I feel that you get a lot for what you pay for. In addition to great classes and awesome teachers, your student I.D. doubles as monetary system that works at certain locations around town. The Tiger Bucks system is basically a re-loadable card (Your I.D.) that starts with a free $100 on it. once you run out you can put more money on it. Your Tiger Bucks do not subtract from your meal plan!

Tuition for this school is very reasonable. Especially when you are looking for a 4 year accredited school. The teachers are highly educated and are available in their offices during specified hours and can answer ANY questions you have for them and explain them thoroughly.
Britton from Robertsdale, AL
UWA is totally affordable. *View the school website for more details.
Jamilia from Eutaw, AL
I personally love the University of West Alabama. I have met some great people here at UWA and would not change anything about my college experience.
from Livingston, AL
I honestly think my money is spent well.
Brittany from Rainbow City, AL
The school is not very very expensive compared to Auburn and Alabama, however, since this school was my last minute choice, I have to say I would rather pay my money elsewhere just because of that. Also, like most colleges, some of the staff aren't good at their jobs.
