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

3.70 Average Rating
The tuition is very high, but students can apply for financial aid and receive a lot of money through the school and other sources.
Sarah from Wadsworth, OH
More than 85% of Hiram College students receive financial aid. Because of the generous endowment from the college any student from any income is able to get a top tier education that is affordable.
Jay from Cleveland, OH
This school is very expensive and as of right now I am having some trouble paying for my education.
Samantha from Boardman, OH
You really don't pay the full price tag, a lot of people only pay 5-10% of it. A really nice gym, extensive library and good food are great rewards.
Angela from Rome, OH
It can be a bit pricey unless you are eligible for scholarships, which they give a lot of. The great academics are worth it.
Jessica from Windsor, OH
If you ask students around campus, Why did you come to Hiram College, a majority of them will save they were the cheapest? Even though the sticker price for a single year at Hiram College is $34,000 with room and board it is only there to scare people. A majority of the students pay under $11,000 with room and board and that is less then most state colleges. Rather than going to a college which crams three hundred students into an auditorium to meet with a professor who will never even know your name Hiram prides itself on classes smaller then twenty-four students from day one. The college has been ranked in the Princeton review for having the best college experience and most for your money. This is a liberal arts college and because of that a lot more experiences are offered such as three week study abroad trips. Due to the availability and affordable price to study abroad over fifty percent of students do so by the time they graduate. Also, there are many opportunities to learn about other cultures with twelve to fifteen percent of students being international, a large international forum club which is open to everyone, a program put on yearly to display the different cultures, and Bowler dormitory putting on a tribute to a different country on the first Friday of each month. In addition, there are forty-five active clubs on campus which can be joined along with fourteen varsity sports most of which allow walk on try outs.
Corey from Ravenna, OH
My tuition is 36, 000 dollars. However, my financial aid package was 28, 000 dollars. That leaves room for 8,000 dollars, which is a lot of money. However, this is cheaper than most state colleges in Ohio and typically any where in the United States. There are many opportunities to go study abroad, join clubs, meeting a diverse group of people, and getting a great education. The experiences are worth every penny.
