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

3.86 Average Rating
One thing Hartwick is great about is Merit Aid scholarships. They can look at your psat or sat scores, although they are sat optional, as well as your gpa and that is solely the basis to finding your scholarship. If you can manage a CR+M score of 1200 or higher combined with a 92 or higher average you qualify for 22,000 per year off your tuition! I would say those combined with the endless internship, study abroad, and J-term opportunities you definitely will receive a bang for your buck.

Hartwick has many great opportunities. You can do research and projects your first year. Because Hartwick is smaller, professors know your name and will work closely with you on classwork and work outside of the classroom. There are many employment opportunities on campus. Like I said above, I was able to participate in MetroLink as a first year student. Hartwick has other link programs as well. Hartwick has over 60 clubs and organization, we have many athletic teams, too.
Catherine from Duanesburg, NY
Very expensive, however the opportunities make up for it entirely, the professors are very one on one with the students with plenty of opportunities to get help if needed, and the college really tries to make the students feel at home and entertain them when going for their degree.
Annamarie from Windham, NY
Hartwick is around $48,000 a year, but they do offer many need based and merit scholarships. Hartwick is an excellent school, and has a very prestigious science department, of which I am a student.
Justin from Fort Edward, NY
Considering that you pay almost 50 thousand dollars a year for Hartwick, you want to get the most out of it. Hartwick does a very good job at doing this. There are many resources that are available to students whenever they need them. The library for example has great staff and many tools you can use. The view of the campus is breath taking and very well groomed.
