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

3.47 Average Rating
UW-Parkside is one of the cheapest schools I know of which still has a very high quality education. I paid less than $8,000 a year for a top-notch AACSB accredited business school.
Marie from Milwaukee, WI
Compared to some other schools, Parkside is relatively cheap. Parking is a little expensive, but if you're staying on campus, like I did, all you have to do is find a spot to park your car for the week and let it sit. True, there were some days where you needed to get something in the middle of the week. Best time to go and get a good spot when you come back? Leave around 4 or 5 pm, get back at around 7 or 8 pm. That's when the good spots are all free, because people get out of class and leave to go home. And when all the spots in front are taken, the residence hall parking lots are the first place they look.
