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

3.56 Average Rating
For what you are paying for it would be next to impossible to receive a better education.
Daniel from Tomahawk, WI
UW Stevens Point is great for its relative inexpensive tuition. Obviously its a four year college, so you do need to live on campus the first two years, but it is really fun when you take time to get to know people. Also, the tuition includes bus fares so you can ride the city buss for free just showing your student ID and its easy access to Walmart, Michaels, Game Stop, Best Buy, Target anywhere really! Plus, you get a Point Card, which has your meal plans on it, and Dawg/Food Dollars (for the C-Store on campus) and you can put Point Cash on it so you can eat at places like KFC, Taco Bell, Perkins and many others (not just food places) just with a swipe of your card. Plus, you use your Point Card to rent textbooks, which is included in tuition! It's nice not having to buy all your books and try and re-sell them later. There are also new released movies to watch at discounted rates in the Encore on campus, tickets are free with UWSP ID and only $3 without! Enjoy all the campus has to offer with comedians and hypnotists alike in the University Center for free as well. If you need a job, the website has all the opportunities on campus, I'm involved in Snow Crew which is a really nice job, early mornings but great pay and fun company. There are hundreds of jobs available just go to the Student Involvement and Employment Office and ask around.

This is the best University in the State for Arts, as well as the best in the Midwest for all Natural Resources programs. It is also the origin of the NWI, or the National Wellness Institute.
Morgan from Stevens Point, WI
UW-Stevens Point overall is a great school. It's not too small, but not too big either. I'd say it's perfect size. It's only goal is to make the life of the student body better and to make them academically challenged but for the career. Definitely a great school to go to because there's just so much to do at Point even though it's a small town.
Mai from Milwaukee, WI
i think it is worth going to uwsp. it is in a smaller town so there is a little bit of less distractions going on, but at the same time there is still many activities to do in the spare time you may have.
Megan from Wisconsin Rapids, WI
uwsp has a text book rental system so you don't have to pay for your books which is a huge relief. it is also one of the cheapest schools in wisconsin but keeps the education at a high level. it is incredibly reasonably priced.
Ariana from Baraboo, WI
UWSP has lots of free events you can attend with you point card. There's also rental books rather than buying your books. A BIG PLUS! Everything else is fair price.
Gao Kalia from Appleton, WI
Point Cash and Food Dollars allow you to make purchases all over the campus for the things you need.
Oralia from Burr Ridge, IL
This Universtiy is average to low priced. It will be worth the money in the end.
sarah from Milwaukee, WI
It's cheaper than other Universities like say UW-EC, and we are very well known for certain majors (wildlife, athletic training,etc.) so I would definitely check to see if we have your major.
