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

3.67 Average Rating
West Georgia definitely has that bang for the buck factor. It's such a nice campus with good facilities, and it is definitely worth each dollar! You get to use the gym whenever you want just by being a student. Definitely a plus!
Patricia from Newnan, GA
I like the fact that West Georgia isn't too expensive, and so do my parents.
Stephanie from Temple, GA
UWG really has the bang for the buck. You go to all games for free, you can work out in the gym all you want and take all the classes they offer, you can eat at the Cafeteria or the Z-6 is what we call it. They have great food on campus and great spots to get coffee, or a smoothie. If you like rock climbing we got it. Enjoy games? Go to our game room! Like to golf? We have a day of glow in the dark golfing! Like to step, dance, sing, or act? We have it all here! You really get your money's worth at the University of West Georgia.
Kelby from Cartersville, GA
Medium sized campus which offers a lot of bang for the buck. From the technology to the course assignments...you will not be disappointed.
Malcolm from Fayetteville, GA
The tuition cost is low and you get more than your moneys worth at UWG!
Ashley from Carrollton, GA
Not sure what Cappex meant by bang for buck, but at UWG you get what you pay for. The tuition you pay will take care of everything you could possibly need. Some colleges gives fees and you don't know what they are for, well UWG explains. For example health fee: if you get sick they will give you the medicine you need no charge you already paid for it, the flu shot no charge you paid for it already. you get what you get what you pay for.
