Willamette sets 2017–18 tuition and fees

by University Communications,

Dear Willamette Community,

The Willamette University Board of Trustees has set student charges for 2017–18, reflecting a 2% increase in tuition for the College of Liberal Arts, a historic low for Willamette and below peer institutions. Tuition will be $47,840 and the standard room and board package will be $11,880. As we embark on the annual budgeting process each year, we thoroughly analyze expenses, seek additional efficiencies, and look at what is absolutely essential to maintain the high-quality personalized programs that characterize a Willamette education.

For 2017–18, tuition at the graduate schools will increase by 3.5%, which is the same percentage as last year. The College of Law’s tuition will be $42,500 and the Atkinson Graduate School of Management’s full-time Early Career and Career Change MBA tuition will be $40,470.

As you may know, tuition by itself does not cover the full cost of a Willamette education. All students at Willamette are supported by expenditures from our endowment, by gifts to the annual fund, and often by gifts and grants from other sources. We are very grateful to the alums, friends, and families whose contributions support student success at Willamette.

We are also fully aware of the tremendous commitment made by students and their families to attend Willamette. Given national conversations around the cost of college, our campus community works hard to demonstrate the value of a Willamette education in service to our bright and talented students. Higher education is an important investment that we expect will produce a lifetime of benefits.

Sincerely,

Monica Rimai
Senior Vice President for Administration and Finance
