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 living in the residence halls and small living units must participate in the University meal plan.

[1] The Health Fee supports on-campus health and wellness services and cannot be waived.

[2] Health Insurance Fees appear on student accounts when fall semester fees are posted. Students who have other health insurance coverage and wish to waive this fee will need to verify that they have comparable coverage in order to have the fee removed from their account.

[3] The First Day® Complete fee includes required course textbooks and learning materials. Students are not required to participate in this program and information on how to opt-out are included on the First Day Complete webpage. 

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, first-year students, or transfer students. Keep in mind, that 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: Tuition and mandatory fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be modified or refunded if 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 student's tuition and/or course-specific fees (such as lab fees).
