How Costs Vary

Tuition & Fees

Tuition and fees vary depending on your enrollment level.  For a breakdown of these costs according to credit hour, see Weber’s most recent tuition and fees tables.

Enrollment Levels

The number of credits you take each semester determines your enrollment level:

  • Full time = 12+ credit hours (graduate students = 9 credit hours)
  • Three-quarter time = 9-11 credit hours
  • Half time = 6-8 credit hours (graduate students = 5 credit hours)
  • Less than half time (only applicable to Federal Pell Grants) = 1-5 credit hours

Complete Costs

Your cost of attending Weber includes tuition, fees, books and supplies, as well as an allowance for living costs such as room, board, transportation and personal expenses.

Cost of attendance amounts are displayed on your Award Offer.  These amounts are updated annually and may vary based on your personal circumstance. 

Your cost of attendance will depend on:

  • Where you live while attending
  • If you are an undergraduate or graduate student
  • If you are a Utah resident or non-resident student
