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

4.09 Average Rating
Since AU is a private institution, it's very expensive. However, it's totally worth it! The experience I've gained has been worth the hard work and sweat. Anderson also offers a variety of merit scholarships, as well as grants based on financial need, so few people have to pay the full cost of tuition. The high level of education and the friendly, safe environment make Anderson University worth every penny.
Jordan from Liberty Twp, OH
You really get what you pay for at Anderson. Yes, it is pricey, but our sports facilities are some of the best in the U.S. The Colts actually train at our gym during the summer, and the track we have inside our gym is the same material that was used in the Beijing Olympics. We have one of the best music programs(schools) around, and our broadcasting/productions majors work on actual televised projects. Our nursing program is one of the best, and if you want a church then you came to the right town. Anderson should be the capital of churches. Any and every church you can possibly imagine is located in town and welcomes college students!

You pay for experiences as much as you do education. In that respect, Anderson does very well. It truly is a community. That being said, it is a private school, and is well out of the price range of some. However, they give out many scholarships and financial aid is good for this type of school. The programs and smaller class sizes are worth the extra tuition in my estimation. Like another reviewer said, where they stick you is the meal plan. Make sure you figure out what works best for you food-wise, long before you sign off on that.
