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

4.32 Average Rating
Even though Wofford is really expensive I do believe the price is worth it. Wofford also has exceptional scholarships to cover most of those expenses.
Tarah from Anderson, SC
Wofford is very expensive at about $45,000 per year. However, the school gives out enormous scholarships. There are specific dates in the fall where students can visit campus to be interviewed for these scholarships, and if you can't visit you can do a Skype interview. I did my interview over Skype and still ended up with a scholarship of $30,000 per year.

Wofford is the second most expensive school in the state of South Carolina and it is worth every single penny. Although I am having to apply for hundreds of scholarships and financial aid, Wofford is worth the struggle because the professors I have met and the friends I have made have taught me so much that I would not trade anything for.
Lisa from Baltimore, MD
One slight downside to Wofford is that it is on the expensive side. Wofford does pride itself on the amount of students who have some kind of scholarship, but you definitely have to work for it. Sometimes I feel like what we pay could be put to better use in some areas like renovating some of the dorms and mostly maintenance issues. However I do feel like I my family is making a great investment into my education. Wofford is known for being the Ivy league of the south and I personally would agree with this. The difficulty of the courses are not unmanageable because the professors are very helpful and want to work with students which makes the money more worth it. Wofford also pays for good entertainment throughout the year and great technology around campus.
Allison from Immokalee, FL
Although Wofford is an expensive school, scholarships are definitely available. The financial aid office staff are so friendly and will work to set you up with work studies on campus, and have plenty of helpful information on the scholarships and grants available. The tuition is high because you get such a high-quality education here, with professors that love teaching and are eager to help you at any time. I know a professor who took my friend to their son's soccer game in order to tutor them! They go above and beyond the norm, and it's definitely worth the expense. The food in Burwell is pretty great, too.
