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

3.99 Average Rating
Its expensive, but if you apply for financial aid and some scholarships it will work out great. The degree you get will be worth it!
Meaghan from Harrah, OK
My financial aid package was much better than what other schools were offering me. They do their best to make it as affordable as possible. The education is one of the best and there are opportunities everywhere.
Josh from Kettering, OH
I'm sure you know that Case is expensive, but they are also very generous with scholarships. However, keep in mind that all merit-based scholarships are GPA dependent, and you will have to earn your 3.0. Also, your admission application (common app) is the scholarship application, so you might as well apply!
Brittany from Macungie, PA
Case is a private institution, with this years grand total adding up to about $55, 000 if you choose to live on campus. However, don't let this staggering number effect your decision to apply to Case. Case gives out huge amounts of financial aid to help those that need it, making this fantastic institution available to everyone. The money spent here will be worth it in the long run. You'll come out with a fantastic education from a university that has an upstanding reputation for producing some of the country's top engineers and nurses along with many other professional candidates.
Sarah from MEDINA, OH
Case is very expensive. The opportunities, however, live up to what you are paying.
CWRU is an expensive university. It is a private institution. However, from what I've heard in comparison the university does have good services for students especially in research and job attainment. Furthermore, there are many student affair's divisions for active participation such as the office of multicultural affairs, career center, or women's center.
PF from Cleveland, OH
Sure, CWRU is a pricy private school. However, with the amount of financial aid and merit scholarship available, the price of attendance is easily offset. You will get your moneys worth.
Chill Murray
The biggest thing that I've found here at CWRU that none of my other prospective colleges offered is the comprehensive support network they've established. There are people and groups waiting to give you advice and strategies for any part of the college experience and the life changes that accompany it. Although the school is primarily focused on the sciences, the wide range of classes and clubs lets you easily explore interests in almost any discipline. And even though it does come with a fairly large price tag, there are plenty of scholarships available through the school to help cover it.
Christy from Boise, ID
Case, as you probably know, is an EXTREMELY expensive school. A common complaint from students every year is that they hike up prices about 4% every year, which is certainly something to consider when you are considering enrolling. However, they are also extremely generous with their financial aid packages. If you do well in high school and you have great enough financial need, like me, it's likely you won't have to pay much, if anything! Many of my friends and I actually manage to get reimbursements every semester, which can go towards books, food, and campus group fees. Just keep your grades up to keep any scholarships you're given, fill out the FAFSA every year, and you will be fine. For the education and bragging rights you will be receiving, it will likely be worth it.
Maria from Cleveland, OH
Perfect. Expensive, but great academics and activities, looks great on a resume or grad school application. High employment rates and acceptance rates.
