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

3.68 Average Rating
This school is the place to be if you want to go into any agricultural or life science fields. And in two years, they are becoming a University. It'll be great to be viewed at a high standard, because that is what this school is all about!
Celina from Hamden, CT
Generally private schools are more expensive than state schools. DelVal is no exception. My advice would be to work hard to find scholarships. The school has many for freshman and for upperclassman as well. Do you research so you don't miss out on any free money that may go unused. The price is high but the education will certainly be worth it.
Savannah from New Tripoli, PA
Expect a quiet campus with city athletes and cowboys/cowgirls hanging out together, unforgettable professors, and impressive animals.
Cassandra from Quakertown, PA
Higher in the price but I feel it's worth it.
Jennifer from Oxford, PA
The tuition is very pricey! However, the school is definitely worth the price. My experience with tuition isn't the standard so it may not be so pricey for everyone else. You definitely get what you pay for so even if you have to pay a lot you will get every cent's worth! You could end up paying just as much at another school with just a plain biology major but at this school you will get so much more!
Chels from Delaware County, PA
This college may seem to be a bit costly but it offers a lot of majors and opportunities that can not be found anywhere else.
Jossette from Erie, PA
Although many would say that the tuition fees are a little pricey, they are definitely worth it. Delaware Valley College is one of the most hands-on colleges in the country. 500 hours of internship in one's field of study are required. This gives students a taste of the career path they have chosen to see if it is indeed the correct path for them. The experience also helps tremendously when applying for graduate/medical/veterinary school or for a job.
