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

3.65 Average Rating
At an average 4 year college you are going to spend about $100,000 or even more for a good college. Its worth it. I just hope you don't make a habit of failing..the first one is free but any time after that is money. Just make sure you stay on top of your finances even if your adviser is not lol.
Lauren from Wasingtion, DC
Definitely worth the cash - they send you a brand new MacBook Pro as well as all of the programs your degree will be needing. And I mean ALL of them.
Christine from Klamath Falls, OR
I'm not gonna lie, Full Sail is expensive, possibly on the verge of being overpriced. However, if you consider the fact that you can get a Bachelor's Degree in two years, and you break their price down into the usual four, their prices are only slightly high than your average out-of-state college.
Jimmy from Northfield, OH
It's a heavy load, but it's well worth it. The quality of the eduction is bar none.
DeJon from Raleigh, NC
Add in the costs of the whole 2 years it takes to receive a degree (tuition, books, living expenses, food, bills, travel expenses, etc), it is cheaper than attending a 4 year college in my opinion. The school is set up to get in, get out, and get a real job in half the time. This also makes the incurred interest on loans less of a burden since you get out of school faster. The drawback of this however is there is little to no time to commit to a part-time job and a full-time student. It is wise to prepare your finances for all your college years before committing to this dedication.
Justin from Winter Park, MO
its sort of expensive, it is a great program and you get a mac book pro but still seems high. plus no on campus living makes it hard for some to be able to keep up with costs
Zach from North Canton, OH
Though the cost of tuition is pricey.. what would expect form the Harvard of media colleges. Full Sail has an extensive reputation and has brought many students forward into the world of music. Guiding there talent and helping many achieve a spot int the industry.
Jeremy from El Paso, TX
I would definitely recommend this school to anyone.
