The price of a Bearcat education has increased slightly again. Willamette University has raised the price of tuition, dining plans, housing and the student activity fee for the 2024-25 academic year. The new prices are laid out on the Willamette website with a comparison to the costs for the 2023-24 academic year. 

Tuition has the highest increase at $1,440 per semester. The cost of a standard double dorm will increase by $200 and the price of a 14-meal dining plan will increase by $185. Additionally, the student activity fee, which funds student organizations through the Associated Students of Willamette University, will see a $4 increase. 

These increases are very similar to the ones introduced for the 2023-24 academic year. As reported by The Collegian in Fall 2023, tuition for the 2023-24 year was raised by $1,500 a semester, or $3,000 a year. This increase was noted as “particularly high, with administration citing inflation and rebounding from COVID-19 as the reasoning behind the cost increases.”
