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

Rivier might seem expensive at first, but its a really good deal if you consider the great education and that it's a private college.
China
Though the college comes at what some may see as a high cost, it truly is quiet the bargain. It is truly a steal to gain such an amazing education through an institution that is prices very low for being a private college.
Sarah from Nashua, NH
Rivier is a private college, and as I'm sure you know most private colleges are far more expensive. However, there are a lot of ways to receive assistance at Rivier and I would highly recommend this school. You could not get a better education at another school. There are about 15-28 students in each of my classes. This is VERY beneficial. Whenever I have a question about something it is easy to get in contact with my professors because they know me by name.
