Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.41 Average Rating
Thirty thousand-something dollars is a lot of money. Many people on campus complain how they feel that they are paying too much to go here for what we get but what they don't understand is that our tuition is really not much relative to how much many other private schools cost. Some other small private schools cost upwards of $45,000 a year. Adrian also gives good scholarships to the best students. I believe that the bang for the buck here at Adrian is excellent, but could always be better. You will get a solid education in a great learning environment, and you will have a lot of fun along the way.
Kelly from Wellington, OH
You get all the bang for your buck at Adrian College. With the top-of-the-line facilities, knowledgeable staff, and plethora of organizations, AC is a wonderful institution. You will get the experience and education you need to succeed, and who can put a price tag on fulfilling your dreams?

No matter where I go to college I know it will be pricey. But, Adrian is well worth the price tag. The classes, professors, athletics, and close-knit community make me glad I chose Adrian.
Abby from Tipton, MI
The private campus, food, classes, and overall quality of Adrian College is well worth every cent. The college is constantly trying to better itself internally and externally for the well-being of the students. Sometimes, this school may seem a little pricey, but we all realize how much space, resources, creative freedoms and comforts, and extensively knowledgable teachers we students are given in return.
Ashley from Taylor, MI
adrian is a private college which can create a larger tuition due to no outside state funding. even though the tuition is much higher at adrian, the cost is worth it. more students will come out ahead being at a small campus with higher costs where they are a name, not a price tag; that's why adrian college is the best choice of all.
