Estimate Your Cost

Western Illinois University maintains a strong tradition to cost predictability and affordability. Western's Cost Guarantee locks in your rate for tuition, fees, housing, and meal plan for a four-year period and remains in effect as long as you maintain continuous enrollment.

*Annual estimates are for a new student enrolling in 15 credit hours for the fall and spring semesters at the Macomb campus with a residence hall double room and basic meal plan. Estimates do not include textbooks, student health insurance, or personal expenses. Estimate your cost to attend (freshman and transfer students) or view complete tuition and fee information.
