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

I love PC but the cost is pretty ridiculous. Get ready to pay a lot.

College is expensive so be sure you have the right reasons for coming to Providence. Make a plan and work your plan to be the best you can be!
Mac
Providence College is not a cheap school. However, the education that you will receive here is worth every penny, especially if you can qualify for financial aid or a scholarship.
Emily from Massachusetts
The tuition has certainly increased in recent years, but the college is compensating by increasing opportunities for merit and need-based scholarships. PC offers a liberal arts education which becomes very valuable when combined with such areas as business and science. From the perspective of the education paying for itself later, given the respect that the name Providence College carries, expect great things provided you're willing to work for them.
Trevor from Providence, RI
Since it is a private college, the tuition is a bit higher than at a state school; however, the class sizes are small so each student can have more individual attention from the professors. Also, there are a lot of services that are added into the tuition including bus fare.
