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

3.88 Average Rating
Platteville is not too expensive either! You get a great education with fewer holes in ur pockets and less debt and loans to pay off!
Cassandra from Oconto Falls, WI
Being one of the cheapest UW schools, it's definitely good value. The education is high-quality but doesn't cost nearly as much as schools such as Madison. Keep in mind that no matter what the school might tell you, it really doesn't matter that much where you get your degree from, especially a few years after you graduate. Of course for something like business a school like Madison might look better than, say, UW Fox Valley, but a few years into your career, employers care more about your experience than anything else. That all being said, Platteville is still regarded as one of the top engineering and CJ schools, and is good for the rest of its programs as well.
Nicole from Hortonville, WI
you are able to get a big college experience for a lower cost than what you would pay at madison.
Cassanrda from Marengo, IL
It's super inexpensive and offers several great scholarships. Without scholarships though, it is still one of the cheapest universities around. It offers tons of programs and accepts AP credit for any class they have.
Neil from Crystal Lake, IL

Jordan from Milwaukee, WI
Platteville is very affordable, especially with there tri-state initiative discount. Instead of paying out of state tuition, it costs less and i have received a great deal of aid to help me out.
Amber from Manchester, IA
Platteville definitely offers a quality education for the price, and the facilities are nice. Though the food plan is a little pricey, it is still affordable and the food is decent compared to other colleges. If you are resourceful, you will find a lot of scholarships offered by the college itself. http://www.uwplatt.edu/finaid/scholarships.html This link is an excellent resource for finding scholarships. The parking pass is also very affordable, my previous college was more than double the price of my pass here!
