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.

Roanoke's new Intellectual Inquiry curriculum allows students to take core classes that pertain to their areas of interest, making for a true liberal arts education.

Roanoke College was recently ranked in the Princeton Review as one of the top libral Colleges. With Roanoke gaining new recognition all the time the value of you degree from here become more substantial.
Ashley from Roanoke, VA
RC is what you make of it. It has a huge price tag, but if you take the time to apply for scholarships, the price tag will be greatly reduced. All of the faculty want you to succeed and go out of their way to help you, one of the great things about this small school. If you work hard in class, RC will give you a community to play hard in, as well.
Rachel from Salem, VA
It's expensive, but financial aid is great! My classes were good, and all my professors helped a lot, and were very open to talking about any projects and were very personal with all my classes!

While Roanoke College is a very expensive school I do think it's worth it. You really get the whole package with Roanoke. The campus is gorgeous, the classes and professors are great, and all of the people working for the school are fantastic.

Pricey but worth it
Maria from Salem, VA
It is a little expensive but they offer a lot of scholarships. The 19 meal a week meal-plan is not ideal but they are revising it.
Dayla from Pomfret, MD
It is a very pricy private institution but it is worth it.
