Planning Your Finances

Residency Info

Check your residency status. Your residency status is noted in your acceptance letter. Becoming a Washington resident after enrollment is extremely difficult, so be sure this classification is correct. If you have questions, contact the Office of Admissions to request a reclassification questionnaire. Residency information is available at admissions.wwu.edu/residency.

As you review estimated annual expenses, it may be helpful to know that payment for tuition, fees, housing, and meals is charged quarterly and due at the beginning of each quarter. Monthly payment plans are available as well. Also, remember that costs for transportation, books, supplies, and personal expenses are flexible and can be reduced depending on your lifestyle choices.
