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
This category could get a rating of anywhere from one star to five stars. It's all up to you. If you take a full academic course load, join clubs or teams, attend events and lectures sponsored by the school and its clubs, and enjoy the food and other commodities offered, then Goucher is a bargain and you won't regret shelling out tens of thousands of dollars each year. If you'd rather take a minimum course load and then spend the rest of your time in your room or off campus, I suggest looking for a less expensive school.
Kirsten from Pennsylvania
I'm not going to lie: Goucher is expensive; it's a private school ,but it is still the only school that requires international studies and gives a substantial support system for it. Take advantage of everything Goucher has to offer now and that'll help lift your spirits when your student loan bills roll in later.
Katherine from Easton, MD
Yes, Goucher is an expensive school.... but it is definitely worth it. A world class education focused on the world and the way we interact with and within it, as well as plenty of opportunities to study a huge variety of subjects.... what more could a student want?
Caroline from Palmyra, VA
Definitely. I haven't even attended yet, and I know its going to be worth it.
Destiney from Denver, CO
Goucher is an incredibly expensive institution, but i really do believe that the combination of academics, students, teachers and staff make it worthwhile. Everyone is truly there to help you succeed, from the admissions staff to your professors. The friends you meet here will change your life.
Grace from Philadelphia, PA
Goucher is expensive, but they do a great job with making you feel it's worth it. The events they hold are spectacular and most of my friends do not doubt the amount of money they pay to come here.
Tianna from Pitcairn, PA
Goucher- Because it's worth it!
(I hope you got my L'Oreal reference).
