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.

It is very affordable, especially for in-state students. Keep your grades up so that you will be qualified for the Dowdy scholarships when you enroll (they were created after I enrolled, so I was not eligible). Talk to your chair about creating incentive programs for freshmen (not impossible - Accounting has one).

At NC A&T SU tuition is a major topic. I am an out-of-state student so my tuition is much higher than in-state students. It is like this at most Colleges or Universities. Though the jump is significant, the education is worth it. NC A&T SU has been noticed as one of the top 10 schools in the Nation for Engineering. Therefore, and Engineering degree from my University holds weight in the Engineering world which gives you more career opportunities. Going to a post secondary school is all about bettering your chances at a well paying career. A degree from A&T is a big step in the right direction. Plus the University is good about trying to find students scholarships. They has numerous University scholarships and send out emails about other possible scholarships. We have an entire Hall commited to helping students find financial aid assistance and helping students towards a career.

We take Pride into our school and why not go to school that has the Greatest Homecoming On Earth! We have the legendary Blue and Gold Marching Machine, the wonderful sounds of the University choir, Jazz band, and the Meac champs cheerleading squad along with the other entertaining sports.

NCAT is worth the money. Coming from Virginia, the out of state tuition was cheaper than some VA schools' in state tuition. I fit perfectly here and the education I am receiving already puts a foot in the door for my career. It is well worth the money.
Angelique from Norfolk, VA
Being an out of state student does have its woes. Tuition is ridiculous, but I know that's a disadvantage of attending school out of state, and it's worse than other schools so I can't be too picky. It's a bit hard to find scholarships provided by the school for my field, and unfortunately financial aid doesn't cover all of my expenses, but because of my experiences, I couldn't think to go anywhere else. I couldn't picture myself anywhere else, so the financial worries are bearable to some point, just because of my love for my school.

I would say you get your moneys worth. Its pretty reasonable to attend A&T. I fell in love with the FLEX dollars that comes with your meal plan. Considering I dont really eat in the caf, it comes in handy. I would suggest you to get a meal plan with the most flex dollars!

The tuition and went towards the remodeling of the cafeteria, and they have a shuttle bus fee that everyone has to pay for in which only few students actually ride it.

Utilize all resources that you pay for! We have a lot of great resources such as the student health center, student union, campus rec, as well as free transportation that take you to different universities, downtown, the mall, Walmart and other locations.
Jasmine from Raleigh, NC
Everyday from 2pm-4pm the union fast food places like Pizza Hut, Chic-fil-a, or blimpies, they all offer 50% off discounts on food!

I live in New York State and it was actually cheaper for me to go out of state to A&T than stay in state to go to some of the schools at home.
