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

3.72 Average Rating
The education is great, a little pricy if you dont get scholarships. But the school gives mant scholarships.
Arev from Falls Church, VA
For me the cost is worth the education that I plan on getting there. It is a bit pricy but with scholarships from the college and applying for others it ends up being relatively less.
Chastity from Reading, PA
Juniata College is small and private, so it is very expensive but holds the potential for great scholarships and huge reductions in cost based on both academics and financial need. The education offered by this institution is well worth the price, and they work to get scholarships, jobs, and internships for any student who expresses interest.
Calli from Carlisle, PA
Born and raised in Brooklyn, I wanted a school that was much smaller and rural, and Juniata is a perfect fit for me. It's an expensive school, but they are very generous with their aid, and if you ask them for help, they'll do what they can. This is one of the few schools I know of where you can combine pretty much any major with any other major.
CJ from Brooklyn, NY
You reap what you sow. the education you will get at Juniata more than makes up for the cost.
Elias from Poland, ME
I think so. The high price might be intimidating, as it is with private schools, but JC is one of the most generous with merit aid I've seen. I received a Quinter Scholarship (which is now $18,000 and requires a 3.75 weighted GPA), so I feel much better about the price tag. No matter what the cost, though, Juniata's a solid place to go.
Megan from New Market, MD
Juniata, being a private school, is definitely not cheap. But it offers a variety of merit and need-based scholarships, along with various payment plans that help to make it a feasible investment for families of all income backgrounds.
Alexandra from Kimberton, PA
The education here is worth every penny. The professors are top quality teachers and will not disappoint anyone.
