  • + 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)

What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
The teachers are always willing to help you, even if you just need to talk. The level of education and resources at this university are phenomenal; we have a wide variety of teachers that have excellent application experience to what they're teaching, not just what you get out of a book. The campus is incredibly friendly to everyone, and the grounds are well-kept and beautiful.
Liliya from Alvarado, TX
Very welcoming and charming. WWU is not your typical college. People are here for more than just getting an education and partying.
