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

3.64 Average Rating
MSOE has everything to offer for students. MSOE offers a general scholarship to almost every student that plans on attending the school, ranging up to $12,000 a year. If students still need financial aid, there are many more scholarship opportunities and other forms of financial aid to every student.

Students who attend MSOE obtain a top notch education while experiencing some of the best years of their lives. MSOE’s small class sizes help students learn better than in large halls. The students experience more lab time than many of the other top universities. MSOE offers a guarantee for on track students to graduate on time and have every class available when need.

Apart from the excellent education, the students can get involved with activities and many student organizations.
Jeff from Carol Stream, IL
This school is not a cheap one. Although they aren't, they offer a great academic scholarship to almost every student. They invest a lot into the school between high quality teachers and lab equipment. They also provide state-of-the-art laptops to every student that are renewed every 2 years (that you get to keep when you graduate). This is great so no one is at a disadvantage when it comes to the computer they can afford.
Kyle from Coon Rapids, MN
Rent as many books as you can.
Kail from Milwaukee, WI
For this, all I have to say is Oh my god. The laptops and tech support are well worth the technology fee. All throughout the year, they have free stuff going on, and not to mention the things that the school pays for when your in a sorority/fraternity (It encourages bonding.).
Danielle from Mukwonago, WI
Though an expensive school, every moment your in class is worth more than the tuition. The school provides each and every student with a computer to use throughout their schooling at MSOE; a definite help. There are many opportunities for students to get free stuff such as tickets for upcoming events, and even merchandise.
Chakraphand from Milwaukee, WI
As far as colleges go, MSOE is pretty expensive. However, the Financial Aid department is usually able to give you what you need, and the acceptance scholarships are great!
Rachel from Oswego, IL
The initial price for the College is staggering to consider, but MSOE does everything in their power to ensure that the average person can attend. They offer a stupendous financial aid package of 12,000$ per year, amounting to almost half the average student's total tuition. They offer work to students in need of an income, and provide services of all types to ensure the experience is a good one. They provide every student with a computer and provide any and all tech support necessary for it's upkeep. They also hold group tutoring sessions and offer priate tutoring as well to any student, whether those students are currently earning B's or F's. For the serious student, they give us ervery opportunity possible to succeed.
Eric from Mukwonago, WI
I would give MSOE a five star rating, since academically, the payoff (95% placement rate, average starting salary of $56,000 a year, in and out in 4 years) is worth the tuition, but the requirement to stay in the dorms with a meal plan when living off campus is much cheaper lowers the value greatly.
