Tuition and Fees

Estimated Price of Attendance for Academic Year 2023-2024

Undergraduate students are automatically considered for NWU academic and need-based scholarships, which will reduce the total cost of tuition. 

Students should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be eligible for, and receive, additional financial aid resources. The FAFSA determines your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Your eligibility for need-based aid is the remaining balance after subtracting your EFC from the total cost of attendance.

Estimated indirect expenses are not billed by NWU, but are included as part of the cost of attendance used to determine financial aid eligibility. Financial aid may be used to help cover indirect expenses.

See your admission counselor or contact the NWU financial aid office for a personal cost estimate.
