2020–21 Undergraduate Tuition and Fees

Full-year tuition and fees for a full-time undergraduate student in the 2020–21 academic year is $37,960.

Westminster offers a full range of financial aid opportunities—merit-based and income-based scholarships, grants, loans, and federal work study—to help make a Westminster education more accessible.

Tuition, room and board, and other special fees are due in full on the first day of the given semester. Students unable to make the full payment must make other arrangements with Student Account Services by the first day of each semester.

Each semester is billed according to the number of credit hours you're registered for in that semester. Waitlisted classes are not billed until you are officially added to the class.

Full-time registration is 12 or more credits in a semester. Westminster scholarships and federal student aid usually require full-time enrollment.

For each credit above 20, there is an additional charge of $1,560 per credit hour.

Other fees may apply for certain classes including, but not limited to, nursing, education, photography, and private music lessons.
