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

3.79 Average Rating
Wheaton offers a great education, if you can find the funding. Financial aid is pretty good, but definitely look for outside scholarships--it's an incredibly expensive school. Keep an eye out for opportunities such as internships, study abroad, etc--Wheaton is great at making you connections and the alumni are really accessible if you reach out to them.
Nicholas from Loudonville, NY
The college is great but it would be even better if it were less expensive. The food could be better. They could spend less on agriculture in order to pay for other things.
Alexa
Wheaton is rather expensive if you don't get sufficient aide. While the price is standard for small, liberal arts schools, it is still excessive. That being said, the cost is high because we have many opportunities and resources on campus.
Tonniatarenton
Academically and socially, you will get a great 4-years for the money you spend going to Wheaton.
Alfonso from Brooklyn, NY
Wheaton is full of traditions and it reinforces moral values in a great manner.
