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

3.45 Average Rating
The school is incredibly cheap for LDS students, and affordable for non-LDS students. The amount you pay for the education you get is amazing.
Alexander from Chesapeake, VA
I think BYU-Hawaii is the cheapest 4-year university in U.S because the LDS church pays parts of tuition. The professors are awesome and you can learn a lot from them if you want.
Jiawen from Laie, HI
For being a private college in Hawaii, this school is so cheap! Always look for scholarships from the University and even the teachers. The only expensive aspect of BYUH is Hawaii. The prices in stores are much higher compared to the mainland. Also, traveling (flying) is expensive too.
Morgan from Hamilton, MO
Not too expensive, lots of services offered on campus.
Andrew from Holladay, UT
Although living on the island is expensive, our tuition is cheap cheap cheap! If you're not a member of the church, it is more expensive. Housing and a food plan is decently priced too.
Erin from Honolulu, HI
The tuition is more affordable for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but (especially for a private college) it is still a very good deal.
Cammie from Laie, HI
Very cheap considering it's a private school. Great staff, good courses, amazing location! Air fare isn't all that cheap though..
Caitlin from Pittsburg, CA
Attending this school is a steal compared to other schools in the state of Hawaii.
