Higher Education, Lower Debt
As one of the most affordable universities in the U.S., Weber State University has a rising reputation for great return on investment. Here’s why:
We prioritize keeping tuition costs low: Our out-of-state tuition is often lower than in-state tuition in other states, while Utah’s strong job market gives our grads great opportunities.
Within 3 months of graduation, 85% of Weber grads have full-time jobs and make an average starting salary of $51,600 per year.
Every year, we award over $90 million in financial aid to nearly 14,000 students—not only making the cost even lower, but also making it possible for our students to graduate with little to no debt.
Among Weber State’s 26,000+ students, you’ll find certificate-seekers, undergraduates and master’s degree candidates. You’ll also find a diverse population of local first-generation college students; high percentages of students who are married, have children, are working full time, commute to our campuses and centers, and receive financial aid; along with a growing number of out-of-state and international students. Today, we are proud to continue our legacy of opportunity, offering a quality education and personalized teaching at an affordable cost.
Weber State University: At a Glance
At Weber State, students not only find what they’re looking for academically — we have 225+ certificate and degree programs and 13 graduate programs — they also find professors who put teaching first. Our small classes give Wildcats big opportunities to discover their passions, research topics from anthropology to zoology and change the world through service learning.
We are nestled at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in Ogden, Utah — a vibrant and diverse city that has earned a national reputation as a great place to live, raise a family and do business. Northern Utah offers outdoor recreation activities for all four seasons, as well as world-class culture, arts and sports.

Weber State enjoys deep ties to our community, our region and our state as an educator of the workforce, an idea generator and employer. Always looking to support local businesses, we work with companies to develop programs and degrees specific to their needs.
