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.

In-State Tuition In-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who meet the state's or institution's residency requirements. In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.

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

3.98 Average Rating
WLC is not just a college; it is a place to find your inner self with great support and guidance. The small feel and breath-taking beauty of the college itself only enhances the richness of the great academics that flourish from the heart of the students and professors.
Mc Naughton, WI
For the expensive private college price, the school is absolutely amazing and completely worth it.
Kylee from Belvidere, IL
As with private schools, WLC looks expensive at a glance. But with help from financial aid, you will find a way through grants and loans.
Rebekah from Brookfield, WI
The price is expensive, but manageable with all the financial aid they provide. The teachers seem to be always available for questions and there are tutors willing to help you in almost any subject. You are definitely getting what you pay for.
WLC has an initially scary price tag, but it offers a lot of scholarships and between those scholarships and state funding, it ends up being less than half of what you anticipate. :) If you are going for Education, it is one of the top colleges in the state and schools ASK WLC for upcoming graduates because they like our program!
