How much does Wheaton College cost?

Wheaton College tuition, room, board, and fees—a.k.a. the total direct cost or “sticker price” for students—will be $54,160 for the 2022-2023 academic year.

But keep in mind: Most Wheaton students do not pay the sticker price. They pay the net price, which varies based on the information you supply on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Each student’s net price is different, and it’s determined by this equation:

Net Price = Total Direct Cost – All Gift Aid (scholarships and grants, but not loans)
