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

3.91 Average Rating
A private christian college with very low tuition compared to other private christian colleges. Small class size. Numerous majors and minors. Great clean and safe dorms. Plenty of extracurricular activities to participate in or just to watch.
Kyle from Lakeville, MN
Bethany seems to be expensive, but it provides a lot of scholarships. The people who work there also try to help prospective students reduce costs and keep money from not hindering them from attending. A good education from professors who care is really worth the cost, no matter what it may be.
Nichole from Golden Valley, MN
bethany is the least expensive private school in all of minnesota. it's going to be very hard to beat all the individualized attention and small class sizes that are offered here. (for example, most of the upper division classes in the education department have 10 or fewer students!) even the general education courses (i.e. biology, religion, etc.) have no more than about 35 students.
