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

3.67 Average Rating
Tuition seems really expensive, but there are a lot of grants and scholarships that help out and financial aid will really help to lower your expenses to a much lower price.
Augusta from Mechanicsburg, PA
The tuition seems really expensive, but the finacial aid office is great. There are plenty of big scholarships, and they'll bring the price down below your EFC by at least a few thousand.
Katie from Hagerstown, MD
It's very expensive but they give out financial aid and work study. It is a private college and my biggest class was 31 people. You get plenty of one on one time with teacher, and free tutoring.
Jillian from Germantown, MD
The price is high, but so are many other colleges now a days. If you get involved and take advantage of your studies, then it is definitely worth it.
Megan from Baltimore, MD
Tuition, fees, and meal plans consistent with a public, state school with many scholarship opportunities and on campus employment available.
OLIVIA from Pompton Plains, NJ
You will have to spend quite a bit out of pocket first year, but once you get your foot in the door you will be good to go and on your way to getting a degree and fulfilling your dreams.
