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

3.94 Average Rating
I'll admit, I have some questions about where the money from our ever-higher tuition costs goes. New napkin dispensers? Paving Appalachian Way three times in a year? What about the leaky ceiling in the dorms, or the mold problems, or a new gym?
Then again, I really don't know what goes on with finances. It's going to look sketchy from any outsider's point of view, I'm sure. I transfered from Houghton College (NY), and they cost roughly the same, but Houghton is way nicer as far as facilities go. So I don't know.

Montreat is a bit expensive but the experience is great!!! It is private so its a little to expensive. (34,000 a year)
Devon from Cullowhee, NC
Really expensive, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

The price of this college is very intimidating because it is so much. However; when all the bills are paid off and everything looks in the right direction, it was well worth the expense.
