Cost of Attendance

Tuition and required fees are fixed for all students. Financial aid is available, and Wesleyan
meets the full demonstrated need of all admitted students. For the 2024-25 academic
year, the costs are:

Tuition $69,652
Activity Fee $390
New Student Matriculation Fee $300
Green Fund Fee (optional)† $30
Food and Housing $19,872
Books and Supplies and Personal Expenses $2,750
TOTAL First Years: $92,994
Continuing Students: $92,694
*Direct Loan origination fees $44

 † An optional opt-out fee set by students to fund sustainable projects on campus.

Wesleyan is a residential institution. All Wesleyan undergraduates are required to
live in University housing and participate in a University meal plan. All students can upgrade to an enhanced meal plan at an additional cost. Optional student health insurance is also available through an outside agency for an additional fee (all students must have health insurance).

*If the student requests Federal Direct Loans, an additional $44 origination fee will be added to the Cost of Attendance. For all Federal Direct Loans disbursed on or after October 1, 2020, and before October 1, 2024, an origination fee of 1.057% will be assessed by the Department of Education.  This origination fee is subtracted from your total loan amount.  As such, the amount that disburses to your Student Account will be slightly less than the amount of Direct Loan requested.  The origination fee included in your Cost of Attendance is based on the average Direct Loan origination fee for students enrolled at Wesleyan.
