Tuition, fees, and room/board were calculated by multiplying the 2012-13 annual rates by four years, the typical completion time for Waldorf's bachelor's degree programs. Costs for room and board apply only to residential programs. Costs may vary due a variety of factors, such as the number of credits the student takes each semester or term.

Textbook and supply costs were compiled for each academic program using the 2011-12 rates. Costs for textbooks and supplies may vary due to a variety of factors, such as cost fluctuations and student selection of course electives. Currently textbooks are provided free-of-charge to students enrolled in Waldorf's online degree programs through a Textbook Grant program.

Transportation and personal expenses listed for residential programs reflect the estimates provided by the Iowa College Student Aid Commission, multiplied by four years. For online programs, transportation costs reflect the average expenses for one residency course, multiplied by four, as four is the maximum number of residency courses that would be required. For online programs, personal expenses are listed at zero, as students may continue to live at home and work for the duration of the online degree program. Transportation and personal expenses are estimates and may vary.
