Expenses

The costs of attending Wabash during the 2018-2019 school year are as follows:

Tuition 42,800
Activities Fee 450
Health Center Fee 400
Freshman Room & Board 9,800 (based on the 15-meal plan)
Room & Board (college housing) 9,800 (based on the 15-meal plan)
Fraternity Room & Board (UPPERCLASSMEN) 4,650

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 in the Financial Aid office.

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 2018-2019 school year is, therefore, $57,000. You should plan on some increase in charges each year.

In 2018-2019, each semester’s bill will include:

Tuition 21,400
Activities Fee 225 The 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 4,900 Board charges cover 15 meals per week. ALL entering students will be billed this amount for fraternity or college housing.
