NOTE: University of the Southwest reserves the right to make changes, without notice, in tuition, course fees, and charges as deemed necessary.

Financial aid awards are made based on the Cost of Attendance (COA) for the award year and the results of your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The COA includes both direct costs (charges) from USW, as well as estimated additional expenses you may personally incur while pursuing your degree at USW. The COA represented below is based on enrollment noted per semester for the entire academic year. If you attend as a less than full-time student, or if you begin the school year after August, your COA may be decreased to reflect your enrollment status. The total amount of financial aid (including student loans) a student may receive cannot exceed the COA for the enrollment period.

See our Net Price Calculator for an interactive estimate of your individualized cost of attendance.
