The amounts shown below are an estimate of the total yearly costs of attending Whitman without taking into account the financial aid students receive.
Cost of Attendance for 2017-18
Whitman's comprehensive student budget includes tuition, student government fees, standard room (assuming double occupancy) and board and an estimated amount for books and incidental expenses.
|ASWC (student association)||$390|
|Room and Board||$12,524|
|Estimated Books and supplies||$1,400|
We estimate the costs of books and incidental expenses by surveying students every couple of years. Many of the fees that students typically incur at other colleges and universities (such as attending concerts, lectures, plays, etc. or doing laundry in residence hall) are covered by Whitman's student government fees and room charges.
Funds for a Computer
If you don't have a laptop, you may request that your budget be increased by up to $1,500, generally in your first year. This will allow you to borrow additional funds or use outside scholarship money to purchase a computer.
