$14,499 in tuition & fees for in-state students
In recent years, UMW has held undergraduate tuition flat, only increasing fees to balance inflationary costs.
What that means for you and your family is consistency you can count on.
The total sticker price of a UMW education is $27,952 for a Virginia resident living on-campus. Out-of-state students pay up to $44,872, including living on campus, with a tuition of $25,858. You’ll also want to factor in the costs of books, transportation and any personal expenses, and of course, consider how loans, grants, and scholarships help you pay for college.
That all adds up to a large number, but that’s just the sticker price. To determine what you’ll pay, we need to calculate your net price, which subtracts any awards, loans and other funding received, so you have an estimate of what you’ll still need to cover.
Your hard work pays off at Mary Washington.
Depending on your GPA, test scores (optional), and other merit, you could earn a full-tuition scholarship.
Did you know?
Pell-eligible students qualify for federal funding and state grants. For a fully Pell-eligible residential student, it’s enough to cover 100% of your tuition and comprehensive fees.
What if you still need student loans to cover costs?
We make that manageable as well.
You can also earn while you learn, with more than 700 on-campus job opportunities. About 20% of students work on campus and more than 30% of students complete an internship, earning a paycheck and college credit at the same time.
Plus, Mary Washington dedicates more than $1 million each year toward undergraduate research, paying students stipends and research funding to work side-by-side with faculty on projects that matter to them. From the Summer Science Institute and Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Summer Institute, to year-round initiatives to go Beyond the Classroom through fieldwork, study abroad and internships, you can learn while you earn funding.
What’s the bottom line?
What you pay will depend on your family and your goals, but don’t get stuck on the sticker price. Estimate your net price using our online calculator, or give us a call to talk through details. We’re here to help.
