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

3.26 Average Rating
AAMU is actually an inexpensive school and people get what they need from this school. I am an in-state student and my tuition is under 13,000 this year. Out of state students have told me that this was a wise choice financial for them.
Jalesia from Anniston, AL
AAMU is the least expensive University in the State of Alabama and is definitely worth the price. Because of the schools size there are also many ways to obtain scholarships if you take the time to look for them. Also Huntsville by far is also becoming one of the top cities in Alabama due to all the economic growth and having Redstone Arsenal. AAMU is worth every penny if your looking for a school you wont be struggling to pay for.
Christopher from Birmingham, AL
AAMU is not a very expensive school and every penny you pay to attend AAMU is worth it. There are lots of scholarships and grant opportunities available for students who attend or plan on attending AAMU. You just have to meet and talk to the right people. For example, any students who plan on having a career in the medical field can join this organization called HCOP and receive free MCAT,PCAT, and DCAT exams tutoring as well as a $2000 scholarship for the fall.
Ashley from Huntsville, AL
The price to attend A&M isn't too pricey compared to most universities.
Shalonda from Ozark, AL
The bowling center in our Wellness Center is great. It is very inexpensive and some days its only a dollar.
Anthony from Decatur, GA
Studying at this institution is really worth the time and the money. Faculty and staff make sure that you are prepared for jobs after graduation. There are so many insternships and co-op opportunties available (especially for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics majors).
Jada from Montgomery, AL
You have the opportunity to meet many people from different background. There is always something going on.

I'm really getting a quality education for less money than most of my friends who chose larger institutions.
