An Outstanding Value

You could spend more than $60,000 per year at a private college to get the high caliber of education Evergreen offers. Beyond cost, no other college prepares you better for the way the world really works, unlocking lifelong opportunities for success in careers, service, graduate school, and beyond.

Help Paying for College

We encourage all students to apply for scholarships and tuition awards and financial aid every year, which will help reduce tuition costs.

Western Undergraduate Exchange or WUE

Evergreen participates in the Western Undergraduate Exchange, which can help residents of sixteen Western states and territories reduce tuition by over 60%.


Overall Costs

The cost of attendance (COA) is more than just tuition. As a Greener, your annual budget includes tuition, books and supplies, room and board (regardless of where you live), transportation, and personal expenses. Estimate your cost of attendance with our Net Price Calculator.
