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

3.74 Average Rating
The majors that LeTourneau University offers are taught very well. Professors are chosen carefully, and many stay for decades. Every class is meant to truly teach students something.
This means that students learn more than the subject of their major; they also carry away a wealth of knowledge about other subjects. The price of each year at LeTourneau University, before any awards, scholarships or grants are taken into account, is about $28,000. This is slightly above the 2008 average, but it is well worth it.
Also, there are generous scholarships for merit based on the high school GPA and SAT or ACT scores, which range from $6000 per year to $9000 per year, taking out up to a third of tuition.

Don't let anyone tell you any different; LeTourneau is expensive. Especially if, like me, you are a flight major. On top of all the other expenses that other students are paying for, flight majors have to pay for airplane expenses, simulators, mechanic/maintenance tools, and some of the biggest textbooks on campus. However, the education is second to none. The hands-on experience is just that: they don't let you read about something and then not do it. There are free programs coming out the wazoo for LeTourneau students from tutoring (yes, FREE tutoring!) to intramurals to ice cream Fridays to free Monster energy drinks during finals week. The price is high, but the experience is well worth it.

It is some what expensive so make sure you apply fr scholarships, but it is worth the cost in the end.
Tara from Longview, TX
because letourneau is a private university, the tuition costs fit the bill for a pricey higher education. however, the school provides hands on learning from the very first semester of freshman year. freshman engineering students build their own 3d printer and cnc router first semester. labs contain no more than thirty students, and lectures will never reach 120 students. the student faculty ratio stays low for a more personal experience. all the housing prices for dorms stay the same price no matter which dorm you live in, and the meals plans all have a consistent price as well. the campus is college student friendly with activities that don't drain the wallet or bore a student to death.

Only because of my scholarships though. LeTourneau is well recognized for their engineering degrees, and the tuition is quite hefty if you have no outside financial support.
Judah from Carrollton, TX
Great quality education for the money that goes into it. They even offer very high merit scholarships that you can get to help yourself out.

Employers like LeTourneau grads. Most people I know have pretty good job offers even before they graduate.
Daniel from Bellevue, NE
Letourneau is a pretty expensive school, but the education you receive is incredible! You learn so much within one class period.
Caitlin
The room and board is really steep, but the tuition is worth it since the education is so excellent.
