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

3.85 Average Rating
Seems like I am paying a lot of tuition and nit completely sure what it all goes toward. There are a lot of fines that are punishments for disciplinary actions.

Scholarships and loans make going here affordable.
Jessica from Partlow, VA
I'm not going to lie, Bridgewater is expensive. However, the amount of scholarship money they are able to give away was the deciding factor for me to come here.
Heather from Crimora, VA
While Bridgewater is an expensive school, you will have many opportunities for scholarships to help you pay for school. The campus is flawless and people are amazing.
Kaleigh from Williamsburg, VA
Since it's a Liberal Arts College you'll get exactly what you want from it! There is a huge difference between a regular University and a Liberal Arts College. The education gained from Bridgewater will help you pursue and achieve a life beyond your expectations! There is no doubt that you could get any more from Bridgewater than you are given!
