Tuition and Costs

Earning your degree doesn't have to cost a fortune. UWF has not increased tuition in more than five years. Argos pay about 40% less annually than the national average in tuition and fees, according to College Board data. And our special Alabama rate bests many in-state rates.

These are the tuition rates for the 2020-2021 academic year; rates for semesters starting Fall 2021 are subject to change.
