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

3.76 Average Rating
Although Asbury is hard to afford for many, it is definitely worth it it. Living on Asbury's campus is so fun and wonderful. Transfer in if you have to, but you should definitely come to Asbury. I understand that it's not for everyone, but I believe that most people would be very happy here, with how they learn to stretch themselves and grow in the Lord here.
Kiana from Minneapolis, MN
Well worth it.
Robert from Highland, IL
Yes, the finances are expensive. But with all the added benefits from the wonderful relationships, educational options, and spiritual growth, you pay a price absolutely worth it.
Emily from Strathmore, CA
Although its a little pricy for me I know that it will be worth the money. Its hard not having enough to cover the costs this minute but either way it will definitely be worth the effort and money put into it.
Jennifer from Savannah, GA
Asbury's financial aid office really tries to help and accommodate students in any way that they can.
Jessica from Keystone, IN
It may be pricey but it's worth it!!!
Jessica from Flushing, MI
Even though Asbury is expensive, the school is definitely worth the extra money. Since we have smaller classes, the teachers really get to know you and they care a lot about you, the student. This was really shown to me when my grandma was diagnosed with brain cancer. Living four and half hours away and with gas prices on the rise, it was impossible for me to travel home as much as I wanted to. On top of everything occurring back home, I was in a class, working on a movie. My professor was willing to let me go home multiple times along with taking his final early just so I could go home to be with my grandma before she passed. As a result of my grandma being so close to me and her passing, my grades dramatically dropped. Little did I know, my professor had talked to the Dean of Media Communications about what had happened. Such a true blessing!
Samantha from Lafayette, IN
Asbury is worth every penny. It is an extremely positive environment and it is without a doubt the best decision I have ever made.
Vicky from Abilene, TX
I find the tuition a little steep, but scholarships help.
