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

3.75 Average Rating
Defiance college is a private school, and is therefore more expensive than most state schools. I, however, would never change schools for anything. This school is right where I need to be.
Clairice from Smithville, OH
It is a little on the expense side, but they offer more to you. Since you are paying a large amount in tuition, they want you to keep your grades up by offering free tutoring and study tables in the library. They really don't want to see a student suffer in any way, so they work with you and your professors to make it easier for you.
Melanie from Medina, OH
The college offers a great educational environment and has many opportunities for you. They offer many places to study and other places to mess around.
I never have to go out to eat because the college handles all of my meals (buffet style.) You receive a free membership to the YMCA so you never have to worry about fitness center costs, there is a fitness center just down the road (within walking distance) from the college that students are able to go to for free. All Defiance College students are able to attend the sporting events free of charge.
Daryl from Toledo, OH
I'm not sure what this is.
Ashleigh-Beth from Urbana, OH
Defiance College is a little pricy at around $30,000; however, DC offers many scholarships ranging from $10,000 to full tuition making it affordable for any student looking for a quality education. The personal attention that DC offers is well worth the price, but hard-working students will find that financial aid can make Defiance College more affordable that ANY public university.
