WHOA. I thought you said it was affordable
It is. Let’s compare the sticker price vs. the actual cost for a Washington state resident.
What should I expect my actual cost to be?
In short, it varies, based on merit, need levels, and other eligibility criteria, but 75% of WSU students receive financial aid.
And, 69% of our students receive scholarships and/or grants—money that doesn’t have to be repaid—with an average award of $10,913.
Average cost after aid: $15,300
In-state cost by household income
|Household income||Average cost after aid|
|Less than $30,000||$7,689|
|More than $110,001||$23,684|
BUT, look at the average financial aid package for incoming students last year: $10,913
Well, how do I repay more than $23,000?
WSU grads are successful
As a result, WSU grads are better prepared to pay back their loans.
