Tuition & Fees
Per year (fall and spring semesters) $6,391
We’re one of the most affordable universities in the U.S. In fact, our in-state tuition is 40% lower than the national average. Every year, we award over $90 million 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.
Our students are always posting photos with the caption, “My campus is prettier than yours,” and for good reason. Weber’s mountainside setting in Ogden, Utah, has so much to offer. Whether you’re seeking solitude or craving a challenge, you’ll find four seasons of recreation on the mountains, trails, rivers and reservoirs that surround this active, outdoorsy city.
