What's Included in my Cost of Attendance

Your cost of attendance is made up of two different types of costs: direct and indirect.


  • Direct costs are items that will appear on your student billing statement, such as tuition, fees, food, and housing. This is the cost of a Warren Wilson education.
  • Indirect costs will not appear on your student account statement but are estimated costs associated with attending college and should be included in your financial aid budget. These include items like books, supplies, equipment, transportation, living expenses, and personal/miscellaneous expenses. 

        The Cost of Attendance may be adjusted based on the following factors:

    • Number of enrolled credit hours 
    • Cost of Living Expenses
    • Study abroad expenses
    • Transportation expenses
    • Dependent Care
    • Disability-related expenses
    • Other Miscellaneous Educational expenses

Here at WWC we understand circumstances arise where students are unable to purchase books at an out-of-pocket cost.  If you are experiencing financial difficulties in obtaining your books, please come speak to the Financial Aid Office.  Please note there are limited resources to assist students and those options are on a first come first serve basis.  

If your anticipated financial aid results in a credit balance on your account, please be advised that you will not be able to get a refund of those funds until we have actually received them. This includes credits from student loans. 

For more detailed information regarding refunds please visit the Student Accounts Refund Checks webpage. 

Financial aid for the Fall and Spring Semesters is typically disbursed weeks 3-6 of classes. WWC Work Grants are disbursed as work contract hours and are earned on a monthly basis. A refund will not be available until all of the funds have been disbursed.

If you have a monthly payment plan, a refund will not be made available until your payment plan is paid in full.

If a third party (such as 529 college savings plan) issued a payment to your student account, it is the student's responsibility to determine if a credit balance should be returned to the third party. There may be tax consequences and deadlines applicable to such issues.
