Tuition and Fees

Tuition and University fees are subject to change without notice by action of the Western Illinois University Board of Trustees.

Western Illinois University offers guaranteed tuition and fees, as well as guaranteed room and board rates for each new class of entering students. The guaranteed rates remain in effect for four years as long as students maintain continuous enrollment. Students who finish a degree program and who continue at the University will be assessed the appropriate rate in effect at the time of their next enrollment. The tuition and fee rates for new undergraduate students (first enrolled Fall 2012, Spring 2013, or Summer 2013) appear below. Tuition and fee rates for returning students may be obtained by contacting the Billing and Receivables Office located in Sherman Hall 106, telephone (309) 298-1831, or at wiu.edu/billing.
