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

3.63 Average Rating
It is a private school so the cost is higher than other schools, but they give very good amounts of financial aid especially if your GPA is high. They offer a lot of free help/tutoring and free events which always give out free food so if you take advantage of all the FREE things they offer than you will definitely get your moneys worth!
Yulie from Glendale Heights , IL
I also recieved a $12,000 scholarship so it will cut the cost almost in half for me. I also got offerend another interview to recieve even more money, and I got another $1,000. Tutition is not cheap, cheap, but it's worth the money. Plus free laundry, and free printing. Use those to your advantage!
Beca from Chicago, IL
Lewis is an expensive school, but the majority of their students have received scholarships to attend there. The school is always building and making it the best place to learn, but somethings get overlooked like bathroom updates and other issues that should be addressed.
Jessica from New Lenox, IL
Everyone here is so respectful! They are very kind and it is very comforting especially for incoming freshman.
Carolina from Romeoville, IL
This school is not cheap BUT they are very good with scholarships. When you apply, you automatically get a scholarship for your grades. Also, if you went to a Lasallian high school, you get money for that as well. If the money they give you is not enough, they also have an extra scholarship online which you can apply for, it gives you an extra 1,000-5,000 dollars depending on your answers. Overall, this school is not cheap, but it is worth every dime.
Karina from Crest Hill, IL
Expensive but so worth it. Im a nursing student and i've gotten so many job offers becuase of my schools nursing reputation!

If you seek the right help.
Jason from Bolingbrook, IL
Although it may be on the pricier side of schools, it's not one of the most expensive private schools. Lewis offers many scholarships and grants to those who work hard throughout high school. There are a few scholarships obtainable to those who plan to transfer to Lewis after a community college, but the major benefits come to those who enroll right out of high school
