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

4.12 Average Rating
The only problem with Elon is it is Expensive. But the connections it enables you to make, and the excellence of the teachers are worth the money.
David from Hunt Valley, MD
Cost is really the only downside to Elon, though with the connections you will make and Elon's growing name, it is worth it!
Jacki from Asheboro, NC
as an institution elon will make sure that you receive all the tools, resources, support, and guidance you'll need to succeed. you can't forget the beauty of the campus and the willingness that everyone has to make sure that you feel at home. i can say that elon university is one of the few universities that dedicates themselves to the diversity, growth and success of every individual. it's the perfect example of what a university should be and that is inspiration, respect, generosity, and initiative.
Brian from Burlington, NC
The campus of Elon does not go without compliments towards its breath-taking environment. Besides the fact that the brick faeries (people that seem to have pleasure in stealing the bricks from the campus walkways) tend to make a visit every now and then, the campus is beautiful. In the morning, you're graced by the welcoming organized, sturdy structures of the campus. At night, you're swept away by the cleverly placed water fountains in front of the Colonnades, Moseley Center and Alamance building. Also, the dining halls are absolutely luxurious. It gives a sense of a restaurant more than a standard cafeteria because there is always a unique choice of food. Most of the food can be customized and there are satisfying options for those who are vegetarians. The college is quite expensive, but it's well worth it.
Xadiex from Knightdale, NC
The programs at Elon are definitely worth the money! They have an amazing study abroad program, and even offer to send you to any Spanish-speaking country for free if you take 140 hours of any Spanish related class!
Kirby from Doylestown, PA
Elon is very affordable for all that it offers. As an up and coming school that gains more popularity and recognition every year, receiving a diploma from Elon will mean a great deal. The facilities are state of the art, the academic offerings are broad and the experiential learning opportunities make Elon a definite standout.
Jane from NH
Elon is an amazing community. Elon's campus is beautiful.
Vicky from Wilmington, NC
Elon is an expensive school, but the connections you make and the quality of the help and the education are worth the money.
