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

3.22 Average Rating
The food is good and the dorms are nice. The classes are great and the people are wonderful. I feel that the tuition is worth it all.
Ashley from Lynbrook, NY
Although Hampton is an exensive school it is well worth it. The campus is to die for. Hampton is on the list of best HBCU's in the country....and that is no joke. The education you will receive is excellent. I believe that there shouldn't be a price on education because that's what is going to prepare and mold you for your future.
JASMIN from Clinton, MD
I believe that I am receiving a good education at Hampton University.
Nikkia from Lithonia, GA
Through the parties and extras Hampton offers its students, they really do give you a lot of bang for the buck.
Myles from Baltimore, MD
Freshman orientation is one of the greatest times of the year for new Hamptonians. It is filled with events ranging from concerts to meet and greets. It is where many freshman meet their potential friends for a lifetime. The student leaders make it very exciting and try to get you feel comfortable at your new home. It is also very informative, letting you know about the campus, the legacy and principles upheld.
Shaniece from Brooklyn, NY
It's best to carpool or get a big brother or big sister who has a car because taxis can become very expensive.
Naomi from Jamaica
Although I do not exactly have the money to attend Hampton University, I chose this school because I knew it would lead me to personal growth as well as a professional one. On a social level I have joined one of the best dance teams belonging to a college: Majestic. Overall I am glad I chose HU and I will do anything to make sure I remain there.
