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

Of course all college is expensive, but Oshkosh is reasonably priced for the education you get. And the fitness and recreation center is included in the tuition cost already, as well as an extra interim class.
Samantha from Sobieski, WI
You get what you pay for. That doesn't mean people fully take advantage of all that they pay for. Either way, this University offers a lot of opportunities.
Kia from Oshkosh, WI
Unfortunately I do not qualify for FAFSA but I have loans to help assist with tuition however Oshkosh is one of the cheapest tuitions in the entire UW system, truly getting you the biggest bank for your buck. The education is liberal, the campus is beautiful and compact with only a ten minute maximum walk from end to end.
Briana from Madison, WI
discounts, discounts, discounts!! all you have to do is go into a place and show them your student id and ask if there is a student discount and most likely there is. also our meal program provides a lot of food for one meal! i can't ever eat it all at once.
Tess from Milwaukee, WI
The dining hall is an amazing deal. You pay for one meal and get as much food as you want.
Ariane from Menomonee Falls, WI
Overall, the campus is really worth the money you pay. The only thing that I dislike about the money aspect of this college is that the food selection isn't worth the $1,200 you pay a semester. Some examples are: at one of the food locations (Reeve Memorial and Mi Taza) one single hard boiled egg is considered a side, which to me is ridiculous because another side could be chips, frys, mashed potatoes. Also, at Reeve Memorial, they are very picky at what you can add on to your meal. For example, at Titan Tacos, if you didn't want tomatos but wanted to add sour cream, they won't let you unless they charge you extra. Or on a burrito if you wanted beans instead of rice they won't allow that either. I feel that if I'm paying $1,200 a semester for food, I should be able to get what I want and where I want.
Megan from Oak Creek, WI
UW-O is one of the cheapest Wisconsin 4 year universities to attend. After touring other UW schools I found that for the amount I am paying I am receiving a much better education than other more expensive schools. Financial aide is readily available & often times students receive more money than needed.
Lindsey from Lomira, WI
UW Oshkosh is such an exciting school to attend. There are always community events occurring and so many diverse ways to get involved and meet new people. The residence halls are also very well kept and safe. There are many measures taken to ensure the safety and integrity of the residents, such as locked resident halls to anyone without a key card, and bathroom keys for every floor. Every night there are guards at each entrance to ensure the protection of students, as well. The university itself offers a wide variety of majors, minors, and general education classes for anyone to enroll. The classes are very educational, and always appropriately challenging.
Elizabeth from Milwaukee, WI
It is probably one of the best UW schools and it's relatively cheap considering if offers so many programs for majors and minors.
