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

4.22 Average Rating
Benedictine College is definitely Bang for the Buck. Classes are small. It provides opportunities to ask questions and get input, not just from the professor, but from other students in the classes. Professors are also available during office hours to help give opinions on future classes or to discuss your current grade or exams. The campus is small, but is a very beautiful campus. The buildings all have a background story to go with it. There is also the brand new Mary's Grotto that provides a great spot for prayer and reflection. The new academic building, currently being built, will be the new home to education classes once it is finished. Aside from the education aspect, there are many things to get involved in. There is volunteer work that is great to be a part of, whether it be mission trips over school breaks or food drives for local organizations. There is also great school wide spirit for all of the athletic events. Being on this campus, just makes you feel like a part of a big family.
Marissa from Shawnee, KS
Pretty darn good! Tuition hovers around the 35-40 k range before aid (on campus), but for a private institution of this size with its' amenities is amazing!
Nathaniel from Saint John, IN
The experience you get here is totally one of a kind and worth every penny, not only do you learn a lot but you have a lot of fun while you are doing it.
Regina from Saint Louis, MO
As this is a private liberal arts school, it is more expensive than other forms of education such as a state or community college. Yet, if you are ready to apply yourself, this school is worth every penny. At Benedictine College you receive a rounded education, one that does not only focus on your intended major (which could easily change anyway), but rather provides a working knowledge of mathematics, science, theology, psychology, history, language, and the arts. This provides a nice supportive base for the major the student decides upon. These skills are important for a career, but are even more important skills for leading a successful everyday life.
Lauren from Saint Paul, MN
Being a Catholic College Benedictine is a little expensive. But I feel like it was one of the cheaper Catholic schools I was looking at. Benedictine also offers a ton of scholarships that bring down the tuition to a very reasonable price. The experience, both personal and academic, were so wonderful that I feel the school is worth the price.
Kelsey from Andover, MN
high quality professors, housing, and overall experience for a really reasonable tuition. scholarships are regularly offered and are really generous.
