Student Accounts

Willamette University is committed to focusing its financial resources on providing a quality academic program. We strive to provide a low student-to-faculty ratio and strong compensation packages that allow us to recruit and retain an excellent faculty. We encourage innovation and quality in all our academic programs. Tuition and fees provide the primary source of revenue for the University, but a large endowment and generous giving from our alumni help to offset the overall cost of tuition.

Willamette University offers a comprehensive insurance plan that supports student well being and peace of mind.  You may waive purchasing the Willamette University Student Insurance plan if you have comparable coverage from another source within the enrollment period each year.
