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

3.95 Average Rating
Bellarmine is expensive, but there are a lot of scholarship and financial aid options that help students. Attending BU was an honor and an experience I will never forget and definitely worth paying a little more than the state or public universities nearby.
Amber from Fort Knox, KY
It is not the least expensive college around, that's for sure, but luckily Bellarmine University offers a great deal of financial aid and several types of scholarships. To be honest, you will always wish you could be getting more money, but the good news is, by being at Bellarmine you will know that it could be so much worse and really the price isn't bad for what you are getting.
Arielle from Saint Louis, MO
It's expensive and I'm having to work tons, but it will be well worth it!
Elizabeth from Elizabethtown, KY
Tuition for this school is pretty expensive, but it is totally worth it because of how much the teachers care about their students and the ability the students have to have one on one time with the teachers.
