CWI has three primary funding sources: tuition & fees, state funding (from the general fund, liquor funds, and Career and Technical Education allocations), and funding from county property taxes. 

CWI’s tuition and fees are nearly half the cost of Idaho’s public universities. The College is committed to efficient operational practices and securing additional self-supporting funds from other sources, funding continues to be a challenge in meeting the growing educational demands of western Idaho.
