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

3.80 Average Rating
All college is, let's face it, pretty expensive. But, FSU has about what I would judge to be average tuition. It's a good campus with lots of resources so it's a good place to spend your money. And you can use online resources like Cappex to help you get some financial help.
Sommar from Wana, WV
Fairmont also has a list where you can get free lunches. One free lunch is down the street from the campus. Bus rides are free including going to other counties. My rent is very reasonable, its not far from the school you just have to shop around and compare. People from the town are very helpful as well!!!
Dlaine from Fairmont, WV
Fairmont is exactly as they advertise, and while the tuition is a little higher than most, they offer a lot of scholarships.
