Tuition Special

After hearing concerns from many students about the rising cost to attend Wartburg, our staff decided to further examine the college’s budget and rising costs. We talked to students, administration and faculty to hear what they had to say about the cost increase. We hope to better inform the college community about how the budget is developed, how costs are being spent and where Wartburg’s costs fall in comparison to other schools. Scroll down to view these stories and learn more about the rise in total costs.
