Net Cost Calculator

We know that costs are an important part of your college planning process. Our cost calculator will give you an estimate of costs for either one semester or the academic year. The estimate is based on full time enrollment (12-18 credit hours) for an undergraduate* program. The estimate does not include course specific fees, like lab fees and online fees, or course related materials and books.

As a new student to UW-Parkside, put ‘YES’ for the New Student Fee.



*Not all undergraduate programs are included in this estimate. Students in designated online programs like Business (BUSO or FLEX), and collaborative programs (HIMT, SMGT, AAS) are charged different rates. View the Tuition and Fees page above for more information about your per credit costs.
