2 The Health Fee is used to enhance student health services on the Reynolda campus. This fee is in addition to any individual student health charges charged for services rendered. This fee is charged at $188 per semester.

3 The Wellness Fee covers student use of on-campus recreation facilities and activities. Graduate students may opt to have the fee waived online through the Wake Information System (WIN). Graduate students who elect to opt out of the wellness fee will not have access to campus wellness, recreation and fitness facilities, equipment and related programs, including intramural sports and club sports.

4 Students who are not adequately covered by a health insurance policy will be required to purchase WFU’s Student Blue Health Insurance.

We recommend sharing an apartment as it can significantly reduce housing costs.

Transportation costs vary depending if a student purchases a vehicle or uses public transportation.

The expenses listed above do not include transportation to or from the home country and the United States. Estimated costs for married law students accompanied by their families will be higher.
