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

3.97 Average Rating
The school is very expensive but every penny of that is paying for an education that can't be attained anywhere else. You get into all sporting events free and you even get dicounts through the school on books, apple gear, and other activites like concerts, FREE!! If you are interested in studying abroad as well your scholarships can transfer over to the school you will be studying to abroad.
Garrett from Colorado Springs, CO
Tuition is high, but so is the education level. When over hearing other students from, let's say UNO, their curriculum is ten-times easier than it is here at Creighton.

About what you'd expect from a private college.
Joel from Fort Collins, CO
Being at a Jesuit Institution gives me the skills to awaken the other sides of “self.” This awakening gives me the ability to critique the society which surrounds me. The emphasis on my degree is no longer on material gain for myself. I realize that that rationale stems from an assumption that money can buy all the satisfaction I require. My education has taught me just the opposite. It has stimulated an other-oriented me. When I help others, I experience liberation from the customary preoccupation with “self.” It also allows me to expand my focus beyond viewing my success as a victory for my tribe, my family, my community or my ancestors, but as an triumph to all of those who are underrepresented, misrepresented and in search for truth. Consequently, I have grown to appreciate other faiths, while being more affirmed in my own.
A Jesuit education, in its purest form, is an active force that participates in the world, but does not assimilate to it. The schools that bear the name work extraneously to hasten the coming of Christ. While awaiting His return, these institutions attempt to ease the discomfort of those who suffer here on Earth. In doing so the language of justice has rested on the tongue of the student. This is most profoundly true for me. Not having a private or religious affiliated academic background prior to attending Creighton, I have grown to appreciate being able to see God in my studies. Finally, having a Jesuit education has prompted a sense of responsibility and social awareness in me. I have been able to recognize the things most important in life are those Ad majorem Dei gloriam, for the greater Glory of God.

I will admit, Creighton is EXPENSIVE! I was almost going to not be able to attend CU because of the price, but I talked with the admissions people and we worked it out so that I could come here! And, boy am I glad that I did get the chance to come here. Yes, Creighton is expensive, but it is soo worth every penny. The teachers, the students, and the lifelong friends that are made because of coming here make it all worth the money that I am paying to attend. I know that if I had attended the cheaper state school that I was going to attend, I would not have received as good of an education that I am receiving here.

Although Creighton seems very pricey at first, they are generous with scholarship money given away and financial need help.
Karissa from Springfield, NE
so far i'm very happy with my choice of creighton. five classmates from my high school also chose creighton, so there was not a total stranger feeling in my first weeks on campus. i had my second guesses late in the summer after high school graduation, but after i arrived and moved into the dorm, i was very happy. i know the cost of cu is on the higher end, but i feel the class sizes are reasonable to allow plenty of instructor interaction. i've always had professors that are easy to get in touch with and meet should i have questions.
