    It's not a cheap school, but you get a lot out of it. In-state is more manageable, too, but either way there is a lot of upside to attending school here. Being here is a blast, it's 4 years I'm excited to spend at St. Olaf, and then afterwards you enter a job market with a degree from St. Olaf. Doesn't get much better than that.

    Tuition can be very expensive, however, most Oles are on a scholarship or financial aid of some sort which can make it a lot more manageable. The quality of education is very high and our facilities are top notch which makes the high cost more justifiable.

    Seems very pricy, but if I go there, hopefully they'll offer good scholarships.

    St. Olaf is pretty expensive if you just look at the numbers. I work three jobs to help my parents pay for my tuition but I enjoy working that much and that hard because I love being a student at Olaf so incredibly much! The professors are one of a kind and with the post-graduation opportunities that we are provided I know that I will be successful and that my education here will be worth the money.
