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

3.81 Average Rating
It's very spendy, but I think it's worth it.
Timothy from Cove, OR
The program that I am in is for working adults. I am able to work full time and still attend classes.
Suzie Student
Yes NNU is a little pricey, but the financial aid works well with each student to address each of their needs as well as giving students many ways of applying for jobs in the area, even on campus at times. Being more expensive is definitely worth the price though. The environment feels safe and the dorms are well built with heaters in each room and Internet ports in every room as well.
Greggory from NAMPA, ID
The school is a pretty expensive school but all money invested in education is well worth it.
Leslie from Rialto, CA
NNU is very expensive. The financial aid officers will work with you to try and help you with loans and scholarships, but it still is very hard to come up with the money. NNU is a great school and I love going there, but sometimes I wonder if it is really worth all the money. But if you can make it work and get scholarships, then it is completely worth it.
Kate from Seattle, WA
NNU, like any privet institution, is expensive. It is so deeply worth it however. There are so many opportunities here at NNU and there are so many social events that the money really pays off.
Kaytlin from Nampa, ID
NNU is very expensive but it is worth every penny. You'll see that every penny of your tuition, room & board serves the school well. Everything here is so very nice and, compared to other schools, big. The dorm rooms are of adequate size and the dining cafeteria is usually worth the cost. Even if you are having a hard time affording college there are many scholarships, over 100, that will help you get money. All of these scholarships are only for people attending our university. Check it out.
