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

3.50 Average Rating
Pace is a private institution that is quite costly. What helped me to make my college decision was the amount of scholarship money I received. Pace provides 95% of its students with merit based scholarships and financial aid, so there is help in paying for school. Is it a bang for the buck? I would say so considering I believe it is a great school with numerous challenging courses that will help me to become a successful business woman.

Pace is expensive and the better your academic standing is, the more scholarships and grants you will receive. They do try to cover all of your financial need but it has happened on a few occasions that some students get their financial aid package altered abruptly and this could cause them to pay more than they anticipated. This probably occurs in most colleges, not just Pace, so be sure to fill out your FAFSA as accurately as possible. There are many great professors here and if you make the right choices in terms of taking the right classes for you and doing your work, you will get the most of your education and feel that the money was worth it.
Betty from Bronx, NY
Although, I have received scholarships to help me financially at Pace, I still find it pretty expensive.
Sasha from New York, NY
Although Pace is very expensive, I can't be mad about the financial aid packages. Mine was definitely a great help. I also realized at orientation that not a dollar is going to waste. With all they have to offer from really cool events to career-oriented classes, I know that it's worth every penny.
Raina from Richmond, CA
The education is top notch but the biggest draw is CO-Op. Pace places high focus on internships and earning real world skills while in college- to that end they help students every year gets internships across a wide spectrum of majors and companies - from lab work in pharmaceutical companies, to accounting at Madison Square Garden or even a research intern for communications at MTV, Co-Op is sure to have something for you.
Nazary from Brooklyn, NY
Even though the tuition for the school is very high I personally feel as if you are getting your bang for the buck. The school provides multiple things that other colleges do not do, for example one of them being that if you don't have a laptop you cant rent one for free from the library for four hours. Also the school does have a lot of connections surrounding all types of backgrounds and degrees, so the internships that they have are plentiful. Also as long as you do what you are supposed to do at Pace you can guarantee yourself a job the first year coming out of college.
Javon from Dorchester, MA
I got some great scholarship money from Pace. But it is still a little expensive.
Loren from Cortlandt Manor, NY
Pace is pretty expensive but very worth it. The financial aid packages are very good and they work with you to try and find scholarships and student loans that are most appropriate to your situation.
