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

This is a cheap school with amazing bonuses to it. I chose right when I decided to go to Frostburg.
Jessey from Waldorf, MD
Bang for the buck! I love my professors and the best thing they know me on a first and last name basis. Right now Frostburg is renovating all the dorms and major buildings on-campus. Frostburg is expanding!
Edwina from Columbia, MD
I think the rooms and tuition prices are worth WAY more than we pay. The food is JUST worth the price we pay. The caf isn't the greatest, but there are other options on campus, like a sub shop, that fit in with the meal plans and cost nothing.
Brittany from Clearville, PA
The tuition is actually a very reasonable price for a college. If you do live in Maryland it is very cheap compared to the other Maryland campus. Even though the price is lower, you still get your moneys worth in education. The food cost is a little pricey but there is a lot to choose from and all of it is very tasty.
Krystal from Fort Washington, MD
This college isn't going to bankrupt you and you still get a Maryland State University education.
Marissa from Lavale, MD
The tuition for a full year is under 10,000 if the student lives off campus and a majority of the student body does so. The Cultural Event Series also offers incredibly cheap on campus activities for students as well as Frostburg community.
