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.

Tuition
In-State Tuition In-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who meet the state's or institution's residency requirements. In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.
$33,800
Out-of-State Tuition Out-of-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who do not meet the state’s or institution’s residency requirements. Out-of-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students not residing in the locality in which they attend school.

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

3.64 Average Rating
I have a learning issue and they have got me a lot of help and Sherri is great and the nice thing about it is they do not hold it against you or single you out if you are different which I hated in high school.I really appropriate this factor at this collage.
Levi from Bennet, NE
This college is expensive, but offers many financial support opportunities, and the education is beyond great.
Zachary from Crete, NE
Doane is an expensive school, but with the expense comes a great education, if you plan on being a teacher no school is better than Doane. With smaller class sizes the teacher really gets to know you and with a smaller staff the teachers you have once you're likely to have again, and they will know exactly how to help you succeed, The teaching staff at Doane is top notch and will do anything to see their students succeed.
Alex from Crete, NE
The quality of Doane's education improves every single year, and is already at an amazing level. The passion from the professors and advisors is contagious, and most students leave Doane looking back at a wonderful, purposeful, and well spent four years.
Vanessa from Omaha, NE
Doane has all the help a student could ever ask for. Student advisers, free tutors, a writing center in order to get help on those pesky college papers (just kidding, of course.) and your professors are more then willing to help out too. Sure, it's expensive, but it's more than worth it for all the help a student is able to receive. At any other large university, you're just a number, but not at Doane. Your professors often know your name by the end of the first week of class. If any of those aren't worth the money for tuition, I don't know what is.
Abbey from Crete, NE
Doane is well rounded with the focus on students. It is expensive because it is a private college, but those extra expenses help provide you with the best education possible.
Tiffany from Omaha, NE
Doane has many scholarship opportunities for everyone! You just have to apply and you have to ask and stay on top of things! For me, I was on an athletic scholarship and I also had an academic scholarship. I basically had everything paid for, it was awesome. The great things is, Doane wants you to be a student at their school and they will try everything in their power to do so. Because it is a private school, it is costly but you are getting the best education in Nebraska that is possible. Apply for all scholarships that you can! Talk to advisors!
Amanda from Lincoln, NE
Doane is expensive, but it gives great scholarships. The students were in an uproar about Doane raising the tuition price to compete with other colleges. It's worth the money, though. You get a great liberal arts education with some pretty decent financial aid.
