Determining your financial needs
Take a realistic look at your expenses versus your resources. Costs typically increase 4 to 6 percent each year. In addition to tuition and fees, factor in the following typical expenses:
Books and Supplies — $2,782.00
Room and Board (rent, gas, electric food, telephone, etc.) — $17,696.00
Personal/Miscellaneous — $5,268.00
Use the estimate to determine how much of the offered financial aid you’ll need to accept. All funds requested above tuition and fees will be refunded for living expenses.
Make a reasonable estimate of your potential income, and borrow only what you need. Managing your repayment obligation is critical to establishing and maintaining a sound credit history.
You will be billed for tuition and fees prior to the beginning of each semester (the deadline to enroll is August 1). Payments received by Washington University after the specified due date are subject to a late fee. Students receiving company reimbursement, as well as those receiving other forms of financial aid, are responsible for paying their tuition by the specified due date at the beginning of each term. You may need to apply for a loan or pay the cost out-of-pocket while you wait for your federal loan and/or employer reimbursement funds to become available.
An interest-free payment plan is available. It spreads payments over several installments. There is a yearly administrative fee. For details and enrollment deadlines, visit the WashU Student Financial Services website.
Health Insurance Requirement
Washington University has a health insurance requirement for all full-time, degree-seeking students. Under this requirement, students must either purchase the Washington University Student Health Insurance Plan or prove they have adequate coverage through another plan. If you do not demonstrate that you have adequate coverage from another plan, you will be automatically enrolled in the Washington University Student plan and billed accordingly. The cost of the Washington University Health Insurance Plan will be published once the rates are finalized. For planning purposes, the historical cost for a 12-month student policy has been around $2,000. Additional information can be found at the Student Health Services website.
