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

4.25 Average Rating
HPU has the nicest campus. All the housing is either new or newly renovated. Laundry is free. We have the best meal plan options, Subway, Chic-Fil-A, The Pointe, the cafe. We have a Starbucks and a Bakery. We are allowed to have our vehicle and can park next to our dorm, even as freshman!
Shana from Lexington, NC
Students receive a great education while living on a comfortable and enjoyable campus. To have such accommodations on any other campus would cost students a fortune but here at High Point University, most costs are all inclusive in the tuition. We have a movie theater which is all free including one drink, one snack, and a nice serving of popcorn.
Jane from Raleigh, NC
At High Point everything is top of the line. The campus offers so much for the students to be a part of and it’s just the special stuff that High Point does that makes it that much more spectacular. There are food kiosks situated on the promenade where students pick up free food on their way to class. The HPU ice cream truck makes regular trips around the campus offering free ice cream. Also, the university takes charter buses to sporting events and provides dinner which is also free to the student. There numerous options for eating that are all part of the dining plan including a bakery with a stone fireplace, a sports bar with flat screen TVs throughout, a “Tommy Bahama” style grille, and an upscale three-course-meal steakhouse. Every building is either brand new or newly remodeled.
Lindsay from Raleigh, NC
Oh my goodness, at a far glance High Point may have a high price tag. However, $35,400 for a private school is relatively a bargain especially for all of the fancy extras that HPU does provide for the students that you just can't find anywhere else. For example, that tuition includes meal plan and housing so there are no additional fees. Some luxeries that we have that you can't find anywhere else include free kiosks in the morning that pass out snacks and drinks if you didnt have time for breakfast, a free ice-cream truck (in the winter they pass out homemade cookies, rice-crispy treats, and hot chocolate), a free arcade, free tutoring, free ipad, kindle, gps bikes, and other sports equipment rentals, free movie theater with free popcorn, drink, and candy, free HPU t-shirts, water bottles, hats, and other gifts on special occasions, free carriage rides in winter, free spring and fall concerts, free laundry, free parking, free 3 course meal from the on campus steakhouse once a week, free admission to all of our division I athletic events, admission to all musical and theatrical performances on campus, free trips such as ziplining, ice-skaing, bowling, weekend camping trips, etc. The list goes on and on. You have to see what you're missing. In the end you can't put a price on the value of your education and college experience.
Natassia from Southern Pines, NC
HPU is a private university so there is no difference of tuition between whether you are an out-of-state student or in-state student. However, they work with you with financial aid. There is the work study program along with applying for scholarships and grants.
Autumn from Germantown, MD
Though tuition and housing is pricey, you are spoiled rotted here. Anything that you want or need is here. HPU makes sure its students are happy.
Nikki from Gainesville, VA
It is expensive but you get the quality that you pay for. You have nice dorms, great faculty, and tremendous staff.
Meredith from Clarksburg, MD
There's so many things to enjoy around campus. Where else can you sign up for outdoor adventure trips (most times free), attend free sports games, enjoy dining at the many restaurants on campus and the 1924 Prime Steakhouse, hang out with friends at the arcade, enjoy a movie at the Extraordinary Theater, go the Campus Concierge with questions, have campus wide wireless internet, attend free plays and concerts, rent movies from the library (for free), have free laundry, free cable and more???
