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

4.25 Average Rating
I think the one downside is the cost. Since it is a private institution, the rates are high. However, there is a quality about the campus, the staff, the professors, and the overall education that makes the cost worth it. I will say, they are fairly good about helping you get financial aid to help offset the costs.
Krystina from Rapid City, MI
Bethel is really good about giving out scholarships to help their students, especially if they've had good academics as well as been involved in extra circular activities and out in the community. Bethel was actually a lot cheaper for me than a state school due to all of the scholarships I received.
Danielle from Muncie, IN
Bethel college is fairly reasonably priced for a private university; however, it is still a little pricey. The experience is well worth the money! I have greatly enjoyed and appreciated my first year at Bethel. You will learn so much in your classes as well as about God and about yourself. Bethel is a great environment to learn and develop as a person. It is worth every penny.
Michelle from Frazeysburg, OH
i always feel as though each professor cares about my education. i could not have picked a better school. i really love bethel.
Amber from Mishawaka, IN
Bethel College is a private school and costs more than public colleges. But, Bethel offers more than those colleges too. At Bethel College, you get Chapel, good professors, good christian people, and a good and healthy but fun christian experience.
Scott from Elkhart, IN
okay i guess
Tyler from Mishawaka, IN
The professors here is what makes it all seem worth it. I know that seems silly, but they are the ones influencing how and what you learn. At Bethel, they care so much about each individual that it truly has changed my life. Unfortunately, I don't know if my professor/advisor will ever know how much he has truly impacted me, but it makes everything worth it!
Rachelle from Sturgis, MI
Bethel isn't cheep- but it's all worth it in the end
