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

3.39 Average Rating
It's definitely a bang for my buck, considering the fact that I'm an instate student. The tuition is definitely reasonable compared to other colleges.
Jasmine from Clinton, MD
The tuition is pretty low (around $3000 a semester) which is a big plus for the school.
Tia from Converse, TX
The campus isn't what it should be. They're building new buildings and working on the campus more so it's improving, but I guess you get what you pay for... But the grass is very nice.
N.T. from Lanham, MD
It is a good school for the amount of money you pay. The campus community is great and you are sure to have many good memories of your time at B.S.U.
