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
La Salle is not a cheap school, but it is worth every penny. The opportunities that are available at La Salle and the percentage of successful careers that come from this school are proof that this school is definitely a band for the buck.
Caroline from Levittown, PA
Its worth the tuition that you pay because of all the extra help that is given to students, and there is mass that can be attended also if interested. The advisers are extremely helpful when it comes to making a plan for yourself in your college career.
Shaquanna from Tobyhanna, PA
If you work hard for you education, every dollar spent at on La Salle will be worth it.
Connor from York, PA
La Salle offers a number of events and trips that put tuition and the $100 student activity fee to use! I have taken several trips to New York City and Washington DC for a refundable deposit of just $5! I would suggest that all students take advantage of the tips organized by the school. On the other side of question, along with a private school education, comes a private school tuition. From my personal experience in the classroom, I have found that the price of the school is acceptable for the quality of education I am receiving. All of my professors know each student by his or her full name by the end of the first week of class and begin to show legitimate interest in each student's education and plans for the future. These qualities alone are priceless in my opinion.
