Your costs while attending the UW will depend on a number of factors including: grade level; residency status; your degree program; where you live; etc.

These 2013-14 budgets were established by the Office of Student Financial Aid to determine student eligibility for federal, state and institutional need-based financial aid. They are based on surveys of students’ costs, comparisons with other schools, input from housing and transportation agencies, and they reflect cost-of-living changes. They cover modest by adequate costs for most students attending this University. Students may submit a Revision Request form to have additional student costs (childcare, uninsured medical/dental costs for the student, etc.) included in their individual budgets. The figures listed below are nine-month amounts.
