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

4.14 Average Rating
It is a very expensive school but have several opportunities for aid. If there isn't a program at the school that you are interested in they will help you find a program outside the school. All of the technology is top of the line so that after graduation you are immediately ready to begin your career. Rose also has a job placement rate like you wouldn't believe. Companies come from all over for a Rose graduate. If you are having trouble with your work you can go to tutors, homework help lines, learning centers, and both the teachers and students are more than willing to help.
Jacob from New Castle, IN
It's expensive, but when you think about the career placement (close to 100% within 1 year of graduating) and the return on that investment, it becomes worth it.
Ranjana from Centennial, CO
Rose-Hulman is definitely expensive, however the personal attention, small classes, and career services department make it all worth it.
Arielle from East Chicago, IN
Being #1 (US News and World Report) pretty much guarantees a shocking price tag but after the Grants and Merit scholarships you are automatically applied for with your acceptance you are looking at a much more reasonable number.
The available student employment options are very attractive for those of us who don't wish to work off campus but still want walking around money.
All of the professors have their doctorates and are always available and helpful outside the classroom. The normal class sizes are around 25 people and the one on one time is a definite plus. I really have utilized the on campus learning center where they have available to all students exams and tests from previous years. I found these extremely helpful when studying.
Jessica from Huntsville, AL
I love Rose-Hulman, but I will admit it is expensive to attend. It feels worth the money for me because it is a prestigious school and upon graduation I will be able to attain a career to pay off my loans. I also love the school's environment and the availability of homework help and tutors.
Candice from Jasper, IN
It is a little pricey, but many students are able to get scholarships to help with the price. Rose also has almost a 100% placement within the first year after graduation, which is almost unheard of. Between the experience and the placement rate, it is definitely worth the money.
Emily from West Chester, OH
The majority of students that graduate will start a great career and start earning good money. Rose is a great name in the engineering world, so you'll go far as long as you do well and learn what it takes to be a good engineer.
Ariella from Lincolnwood, IL
Hard to see it while you are there because the place has an OVERWHELMING pricetag....but when you receive scholarships, land internships, and earn job offers from all your hard work, you see that Rose is worth the upfront effort and cost and effort. 100% of seniors will have secured a solid job before they graduate.

If you work hard, Rose is definitely worth the money that's been put in. Graduates have a 90%+ placement rate, meaning 90% of our seniors have jobs by the end of their senior year. The average pay check for these jobs is at $66,000 or so per year. And if you're looking to find out how the world works and how to make the greatest impact, Rose is definitely your ticket to the next biggest discovery.
