Other Estimated Expenses

Students should also plan for the following expenses in addition to tuition and fees. $1,000 for books, $600 for personal expenses, and varying amounts for travel expenses. All of these expenses will vary by student and will not be billed on the student account invoice. 

Private Music Lessons

With respect to private music lessons, a fee of $606 is charged for fourteen weekly one-half hour lessons per semester, regardless of whether the lessons are taken for credit or audit. This fee is waived, however, for: (a) lessons in the primary instrument or voice required of declared music majors in all music degree programs, and (b) lessons required of Music Performance Scholarship winners regardless of class year or major.

Tuition Refund Insurance

As a supplement to the college refund policy, we are pleased to provide an optional insurance program, the Tuition Protection Plan. The College of Wooster has partnered with GradGuard to provide tuition insurance by Allianz Global Assistance.

The Tuition Protection Plan was designed with students and their parents in mind and expands the scope of our own refund policy. It will reimburse up to 100% for tuition payments, room and board fees, and other non-refundable college expenses if a student needs to withdraw any time during the semester for any covered reason such as illness, injury or psychological condition. This coverage can be extremely beneficial should a student need to repeat lost academic credits after a medically necessary interruption in the student's education.

Complete details will be e-mailed to students around the time of our semester tuition billing in July & December and will give every student the opportunity to accept coverage and enroll. Enrollment may also be completed online. Application and premium payment must be completed by the opening date of classes.

We urge your careful consideration of this protection. Our recommendation is full coverage of our comprehensive fee. To learn more about tuition insurance, call GradGuard and talk to a tuition insurance adviser directly 866-724-4384
