Tuition, fees, and books and supplies were calculated by multiplying the 2018-19 annual rates by four years, the typical completion time for Waldorf's bachelor's degree programs. Costs may vary due a variety of factors, such as the number of credits the student takes each semester or term.
Currently textbooks are provided free-of-charge to students enrolled in Waldorf's online degree programs through a Textbook Grant program.
