Student Accounts Tuition, fees & more


Fall 2015 and Spring 2016

Please note that the first figures of this chart list undergraduate resident, graduate resident, and non-resident tuition rates per semester. Several programs have different rates.

Tuition and fees are due the first day of class which is August 24, 2015 for the Fall and January 11, 2016 for the Spring. The charges will be online one week before the start of classes. If you are receiving financial aid, it will not be visible until the Thursday night before classes begin.

WSU does not mail billings for tuition and fees. The information is available online and you can easily access your account at zzusis then select Finances to see what you owe and pay online at that time. Please share this information if someone else pays your tuition.
