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

the quality attention you get from your professors is worth every penny.
Taylor from Tiffin, OH
On Heidelberg's campus you feel welcomed and you also feel like you belong. The students that I have had the chance to talk to are honest and very wise. I know I made the right decision by picking Heidelberg. The price is very high but you cannot get this feeling from other colleges you get so many scholarships and opportunities to bring down the price of this college.
Arneshiah from Carey, OH
I know that it is expensive, but your not paying to just sit in a boring lecture hall all day. You get to go out into the world and get real life experience, and maybe even go abroad for a summer.
Erin from Woodstock, OH
Heidelberg is expensive. Very expensive. But let me convince you that you can afford it. Heidelberg gives out huge scholarships for academics, as well as athletics and participation in the music department (you don't even have to be a music major, and you can get a scholarship to be in choir!) Also, Heidelberg works really hard to ensure you are getting your money's worth. We are currently constructing a new building for our new business and administration department! Those majors are expected to go through the roof, and the new rooms should be state-of-the-art!
Katelyn from Coshocton, OH
It really is an expensive college-$33,000 a year for in-state students. But hey, it is a private college so of course it's going to be more expensive. If you have good grades, and do exceptionally well on the ACT, you automatically qualify for the $12,000 presidential scholarship. So even though it's expensive, if you add all of the scholarships it's just like going to a public college with the benefits of a private college.
Brandi from Cecil, OH
The cost of this school is great- admissions grants a lot of aid and if you work hard throughout your senior year they will be impressed and you'll have great opportunities to receive scholarships.
Sophie from Canton, NY
While attending Heidelberg is expensive there are so many ways to lighten the burden on your family. The amount of money that the school gives to students covers a large portion of the costs for many students. There are also many scholarships given out by the respective departments for students. A final way to help offset the cost are jobs on campus. Every building has jobs that students are able to apply for, some students even have two or three jobs on campus. With all of these options and the kind of attention you receive at Heidelberg, it is definitely worth the money.
