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

4.03 Average Rating
Yes, RMU is very expensive, but with what you are getting out of the college it is really worth your money! Also, if you are in need of money for tuition, they really help you out.
Sara from Cranberry Twp, PA
It is a private school, so it is a bit expensive, but financial aid will really try to help you out if you are PERSISTENT.
Chenee from Philadelphia, PA
I feel like the quality of the education I am getting is worth every penny.
Kaitlynn from Bridgeville, PA
With them just buying a hotel, tuition is rising a bit next year, but for the money we spend, we do get challenged and educated. We can also get a ton of free stuff they give out and some activites, such as the band, give a stipend so we get paid for going there too.
Stephany from Pittsburgh, PA
RMU is constantly improving. The fees aren't too high for the changes they make each year! There are always so many free events (carnivals, fireworks, dances, sporting events). You will always have access to technology like computers, printers, and copiers. RMU even offers free tutoring, health, and counseling centers. They're known as a less expensive private university, yet they still offer their students more than enough!
Melissa from King Of Prussia, PA
tuition and fees are very reasonable for a private school this size, and financial aid isn't stingy. but, housing and meal plans are a little expensive.
RMU Colonial
For the quality of the campus, education, and everyone there the price is decent. Plus, they really help you pay if you need it.
