Costs

Expenses

The costs of attending Wabash during the 2016-17 school year are as follows:

Tuition$40,400
Activities Fee$450
Health Center Fee$200
Room & Board$9,200 (based on the 15-meal plan)

If an upper-class student lives in a fraternity, his room and board costs will vary slightly because they are determined by the fraternity, though they will be billed by the Business Office.

The room and board budget for students living off-campus (not living in a residence hall or fraternity house) is reduced to reflect the lower cost to the student. Detailed information is available on the Financial Aid web site.

Adjustments of room and board budgets and financial aid will be by year or semester only. Seniors who intend to live in off-campus housing (other than fraternity or dormitory) must notify the Dean of Student’s office prior to doing so. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors are required to live in campus housing.

In addition to the charges listed above, it is recommended that each student budget $2,500 per year to cover the following expenses: books and supplies (about $1,000) and other personal expenses (about $1,500).

The estimated “comprehensive” cost to attend Wabash during the 2016-17 school year is, therefore, $52,750. You should plan on some increase in charges each year.

In 2016-17, each semester’s bill will include:

Tuition$20,200
Activities Fee$225The Activities Fee covers admission to all home athletic contests, subscriptions to all student publications, and admision to all College drama productions and concerts - except certain SSAC-designated "National Acts."
Dormitory Room & Board$4,600Board charges cover 15 meals per week. All entering students will be billed this amount. If a student wishes to increase his meal plan to 19 meals per week, an additional $200 per semester will be billed to his account. Returning students living in fraternities will be billed by the College an amount which is set by their fraternity - not by the College.
Health Center Fee$100The Health Center Fee covers expanded services provided by the Health Center, the Counseling Center, and the Wellness Center.
