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

3.69 Average Rating
The education here is great and you can really tell the teachers care for you. It is a little bit more expensive to attend here but the small classes are really worth it. The teachers learn your name really quickly and it creates an atmosphere that encourages participation in the class.

The food is awesome whether you want something kind of like home, a salad or even popcorn shrimp. The price may be high but I believe it's worth paying for. I am a student putting myself through college and without my parents assistance because I wanted the best education possible at a place that suites me best. I can definitely tell you, it's worth my 3 part time jobs.
Alyssa from Grand Rapids, MI
Aquinas is a rather expensive college, however, the education one leaves here with is definitely worth the money spent to go here. The professors educate in a way that makes you feel comfortable taking what you have learned out into the real world and putting what you have learned into practice.
Tessa from Hudsonville, MI
Yes, I will be blunt. This college is costly. However, you will not meet people like the individuals here on campus, students and faculty. Everyone is so helpful and very caring. Also, the education here is extremely beneficial. The job turnout is on the higher end of the scale. AQ also offers many helpful programs to learn how to interview, achieve success, protect yourself, better your health, and have fun. This college is definitly worth every penny I own.
Molly from Marine City, MI
Face value, Aquinas is an expensive school being 31,000 per year. But in reality, lots of people receive big scholarships, making it LESS than most other schools in Michigan, which is extremely surprising to most prospective students.
Marissa from Grand Rapids, MI
I simply love this college! The people are extremely friendly and it is infectious to get involved in different clubs and events.
Abigale from Manistee, MI
The school is expensive but do not let the initial price scare you off. The school gives out TONS of money for scholarships. Scholarships have actually cut the price nearly in half for me.
