Tuition and Fees

In order to make RWU more affordable to all, we offer discounted tuition, housing and dining rates during our summer sessions. Not only will you get the full RWU experience with smaller than average classes and unparalleled access to faculty members, but you'll receive the same amount of credits in a fraction of the time at a fraction of the cost. And, register for two courses (up to 8 credits) and receive a $250 credit toward your summer housing.


One of the many benefits of taking summer session courses at RWU is the reduced tuition. Depending on the type of courses you register for, your summer tuition can be as little as a quarter of the cost of regular tuition.  View 2018 summer tuition and housing rates.

Financial Aid and Work Study

Because most students utilize their full financial aid and work study pacakges during the course of the year, most of our summer session students obtain private loans as financing. For more general information about the types of financial aid available, visit our Financial Aid section.
