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.

there are many restaurants and stores around that are inexpensive. for example, checkers, burger king, popeyes, and my favorite bethune grill which is a place that has very good chicken dipped in their special sauce.

No one wants to pay for college, but compared to what some of my friends are paying for college, I am truly getting my monies worth. Besides you can't put a price on education. I have looked at other colleges, but have always been accustomed to a small school settings, I'm not certain that I'd get the level of education that I'm receiving at another university no matter the price.

Our band is phenomenal, whenever they're practicing it's always a big crowd of people just watching as if it was an actual performance.

It wouldn't hurt to lower the cost of education just a little bit. Every school has its flaws but I can honestly say that the cost to attend Cookman doesn't make up for its worn out dorms, its nasty same day food, and its door to door parking lots. So many people have the potential to go to Bethune Cookman but they don't have the money for it. That's why I'm on Cappex. I need to get some help for paying my tuition. If i don't receive any help for the up coming school year, i will be stuck at home at a community college, which there is nothing wrong with that but i will truly be hurt to not return to Cookman. At Cookman, i feel like you are only paying for your education and nothing else. The education that you receive is worth $20,000 (give or take) but every thing else.......no comment!

Bethune Cookman University is a little bit expensive being that it is a private institution. This is what causes a lot of student to change their minds about attending, but there are many scholarships and grants available to help you pay for school here at Bethune Cookman. You just have to apply for them. Yeah I admit when I saw the price of tuition I almost fainted too but advisers at Bethune helped me find solutions to help me pay for the expenses of college and after I got help I realized that it wasn't too bad.
