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

4.22 Average Rating
The church takes most of the hit tuition-wise, so it's like everybody gets a scholarship! BYU is pretty cheap, but you get one of the best educations in the country.
Michelle from Provo, UT
BYU is the top accounting school in the nation, and the tuition is between $2,000 and $5,000 a semester. BYU's teaching programs are rated some of the best in the country, and since the USA is the best college/university nation in the world, BYU's programs are some of the best in the world.
If I went an IV league college I would have to pay about $30,000 in tuition for one semester alone, and then BYU may have a better program than the IV league.
Tyler from Highland, UT
You really do get so much for your money!
Rach from Illinois
The cost of attending BYU is relatively inexpensive for the world-class education you receive. Ivies can cost around $50K for tuition alone; tuition at BYU is a fraction of the cost. The professors are renowned in their fields, yet still are more than willing to meet with students. Campus has hundreds of resources that are free to students (a counseling center, one of the largest college libraries in the US, museums, etc) due to generous donations from alumni and LDS church members. Of all the universities I looked at, BYU has the best bang for the buck.
Christina from CA
BYU is one of the most prestigious Universities in the nation and it’s one of the cheapest. It’s all thanks to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, because their tithing pays for most of the students’ tuition every year. That way everyone’s on scholarship and they pay a fraction of the cost. Besides that they offer plenty of financial aid and scholarships.
Carol from Provo, UT
It is worth it to go here. But only if you are willing to put the work in to be outstanding. Everyone here is smart and very talented, so you have to work very hard to set yourself apart.
Brandon from Vancouver, WA
If you are a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the church takes care of a lot of the cost. BYU is the biggest private religious school in the states, and, even with that, keeps tuition low for those who attend it.
Joshua from Las Vegas, NV
BYU is nice because tuition is a lot cheaper that other universities because the LDS church helps pay for it. They have a lot of scholarships too.
Annie from Cedar Hills, UT
Coming here was cheaper than going to an instate school, also apply for scholarships which makes it even less expensive than before.
Courtney from Kansas City, MO
Not only is BYU's tuition much, much less than any other university, but it also offers quite a few additional scholarships. And, in my opinion, the quality of education offered here is every bit as good as that offered at many $40,000-per-year schools.
