Cost of UW-Green Bay

It's all about value.

It's All About Value

Your education will be one of the most valuable investments you make. You are investing your time, energy, and money. At UW-Green Bay, we believe in providing an excellent education at an affordable price. We also want to help you make good decisions about your financial aid options.

Estimated Costs

Your budget for college will include “direct” expenses for your education (tuition, fees, books) and “indirect” expenses (housing, food). Your budget will be influenced by many things: whether you are a resident of Wisconsin, whether you live on campus, your lifestyle, etc.

To give you an idea of the estimated college costs, take a look at this chart. It provides information about the estimated tuition, fees, books, and (for those who live on campus) freshman housing and meal plan.

Financial Aid

Approximately 85% of UW-Green Bay students qualified for need-based or non-need based financial aid (like grants and loans) to help fund their education. The first step in the financial aid process is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can follow the steps on the Admitted Student page to learn more about the financial aid process for admitted students.
