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

3.90 Average Rating
If you start early on your research and show Augie that you're interested in them they will work with you to get as much money in scholarships as possible. Keep in mind all of the scholarship dates (talk to your admissions counselor and look on the web site as well.) While I haven't taken a course yet at Augustana, I do know that because of the tri-mester schedule it allows students to be able to double or even triple major in something if they want to.
Ashley from Dixon, IL
Augie offers so many different things besides the fantastic academics for their students. Once a month we have free bingo and trivia nights as well as a weekly movie (just out of the theaters nd before going on DVD) that is played 4 times. Both PepsiCo recreation center and Carver athletic center offer any level athlete what they desire. The buildings and facilities are fantastic and offer the students so much.
Deonna from Carol Stream, IL
YES! Augustana offers a ton of scholarship opportunities. I was able to pay for over half of my tuition through school sponsored awards alone. But do be aware, Augie is a private school and does cost more than a public university. However, if you want an Ivy League education for a public price, Augie is the way to go. If you contact the school and ask them for scholarship information, they will send you a handy brochure outlining all the scholarships and how to get them. They want you to have their money, imagine that!
Aubrey from Algonquin, IL
Although it is an expensive school, there is no limit when it comes to education. This school puts a lot of important on the liberal arts education it provides, and I believe this is what makes it a bang for the buck. This liberal arts education teaches you not only the topics of your major, but it teaches you many other subjects in order to help you become a more well rounded adult.
Marlena from IL
Augustana is very expensive compared to a lot of other college's, but remember it's both a liberal arts college and a private college. The experience that you would get here at Augustana is a lot different than you would get at a public school and it's well worth your money!
Sara
There is many things here to take advantage of. Not only do they give out free food at every school event, but they also have many raffles that you can win from. Also, the money you give to the school, they use to better it. The facilities are updated and there is many different computer labs and such that you can use.
Amanda from Lockport, IL
augustana does a good job of awarding scholarships for a variety of accomplishments and skills, so the sticker price is not really all that scary. for the quality of education that a person recieves and the memories that will surely be made, it is worth the financial cost.
Meridith from Byron, IL
The education you get here at Augie is way above that of a school with 15,000 people. Class sizes are small, professors actually remember your name, and the resources are amazing. It's also a perk that the dorm rooms are about twice the size of the average room. Yeah, we're a little spoiled here.
