Costs & Aid

Evergreen’s tuition is about $6,500 per year for Washington state residents and about $24,000 per year for nonresidents. By contrast, undergraduate tuition at a private liberal arts college can exceed $49,000 per year.

All students are encouraged to apply for scholarships & tuition awards and financial aid annually, which will help to reduce tuition costs.

The graduate programs in Environmental Studies, Public Administration, and Teaching have different costs, financial aid, and scholarship processes.
