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

At Lindenwood University students definitely get the bang for their buck. I did not think I was going to get to go to college, but with a sports scholarship, grants, and work and learn opportunities, Lindenwood University has made it possible for me to pursue my dream in Athletic Training and to continue to play my favorite sport in the world.

Everything has been pretty reasonable, and out of everywhere I applied they offered me the biggest scholarship.
Allison from St Peters, MO

Tuition cost is very inexpensive compared to other universities.
Malinda from Belleville, IL
My books this semester literally cost more than my tuition. It is a very inexpensive school because they give out so much money and it is a great school for most majors.
