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.

In-State Tuition In-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who meet the state's or institution's residency requirements. In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.

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

3.75 Average Rating
Pretty good scholarship opportunities
HS Senior looking for the right college
I'm not at all worried about getting a job once I graduate from here.
It can't be denied that ONU is an expensive private school, but don't let that discourage you! Financial Aid is readily available and the quality degree programs are well-worth the investment.
Sam
Seems expensive, but the scholarships and grants are very generous.
Anna from Hilliard, OH
I would say this only if you get a scholarship. If you are paying the whole 45K a year, then no it is not worth it. But just about any scholarship nets you a very managable payment, only a little higher than the state schools in the area. With the quality and people, I would say that it is definately worth it.
Sean from Urbana, OH
Everything I have heard about this school says it is worth the price. Once you apply and are accepted they will send you a scholarship offer and most of the offers are very good.
Morgan from Columbia Station, OH
Might be expensive but totally worth it!
Alexis from Batavia, OH
While it can be expensive, they do have a lot of opportunities for financial aid and scholarships. Well worth it!
Amber
I am in the pharmacy program, and it is one of the best in the nation. ONU has an extremely high pass percentage on the boards, which is comforting to students.
