Tuition covers up to 5.5 academic units per semester.*

Our standard room fee is based on double occupancy in a residence hall. Single rooms, when available, cost more than the standard room charge per semester.

Our average board plan involves a flexible program for hearty, average, and light eaters (our A, B, and C dining plans). All students who live in the residence halls and small living units, including Austin Manor, are required to participate in the University meal plan.

You may use our Net Price Calculator to estimate your out-­of-­pocket cost for an Ohio Wesleyan education. This tool is intended for domestic first-time, freshmen or transfer students. Keep in mind, this is an estimate and is only as reliable as the data you enter.

Actual eligibility for financial aid is subject to your completion of the FAFSA, meeting priority dates, availability of funds, and your academic record.


* Note: Some or all instruction for all or part of Academic Year 2020-2021 may be delivered remotely or in a hybrid format. Tuition and mandatory fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be modified or refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely or via a hybrid model for any part of the Academic Year. In the event Ohio Wesleyan University cancels in-progress courses because of a campus closure or institution-wide transition to remote instruction and such cancellation results in a change in a student’s enrollment status, Ohio Wesleyan University may, at its discretion, refund a portion of the students tuition and/or course-specific fees (such as lab fees).
