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.

Franciscan University has a competitive Nursing Program but it is very affordable
Elijah from Newbury, NH
I don't know yet, but I am pretty sure that this school is worth every penny though there is little financial aid available.
Grace from Waterbury Center, VT
U.S. News & World Report�s 2008 Guide to America�s Best Colleges named Franciscan to the elite �Top Tier� of Midwest universities in its category for the seventh year in a row. And in 2007, The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College cited Franciscan University as one of 21 recommended institutions.
Cassandra from Corcoran, CA
No where else in the country can you get such a profound and great Catholic education.
Catherine from Wilmington, DE
It's a bit expensive, but definately worth every penny.
Maria from Williamsville, NY
If you the price of Franciscan compared to other schools, it's actually very affordable. For the complete price including dorming and personal expenses would be JUST the basic tuition at other schools. Trust me, it's VERY affordable when you look around. Also, the teachers sacrifice themselves for this school, they really don't get paid a big salary at all and use this as a sacrifice to offer to God.
Lia from Kearny, NJ
The university is worth every cent, especially considering the fact that it is a private college with knowledgeable professors and good academic programs. Even the ones that are not more renown will get you prepared for a career or for post graduate studies.

The only negative is that scholarship opportunities and financial aid are a bit limited. The university does as much as it can in being able to provide financial aid to its students, but it can only do so much.
