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

3.83 Average Rating
With the classes at Lander you will come to find that they challenge your mind as much as possible. The professors expect you to give them your full attention and time. They expect you to study hard and pass all the tests. The professors are great at assisting students outside of class with anything they need. There are also free tutors who can work around your schedule to help you in a variety of subjects.
Jessica from Anderson, SC
Tuition is relatively cheap. Those coming from SC high schools having obtained the LIFE or Palmetto Fellows will be pleased to know that Lander has its own scholarships associated with the same requirements for state scholarships.
Ellaina from Loris, SC
Lander University has a very affordable tuition, often the reason students choose this university. However, Lander offers many benefits to attendees. The professors really push students to learn as much as they can for their futures. There are many majors and minors offered to students, and the requirements are easy to understand and meet. The campus is small and attractive. The dorms aren't the nicest I've ever seen, but they have a lot more space than many larger campuses and provide more apartment style living - some dorms are actually apartment complexes the school purchased!
Jean from Greenville, SC
You get every cent worth of education that you pay for. there are free tutoring sessions availiable for every subject and teachers have an open door policy so you can talk to them anytime you have an issue or just shoot them an email.
Tanisha from Columbia, SC
For the price, Lander is most positively a worthwhile academic facility located in small town Greenwood, SC. Its quaint and charming but as challenging as any college should be for its students. I think almost all students would like it there.
Kelsey from Ladson, SC
I got a lot out of my classes this year. I learned a lot of new exciting information and got all I expected from the campus and teachers. Also liked going to on campus activities Lander offers.
