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

3.74 Average Rating
Saint Michael's is really expensive. ($43,000 per year to be exact.) However they do offer alot of learning experiences such as dance classes, numerous clubs, ski trips, and so on. If you take advantage of it all, then it's worth the money.
Dennis from Madison, CT
Saint Micheal's is up there for what they charge for tuition but you get what you pay for. Definitely worth every penny.
Jacqueline from Graniteville, VT
Coming from a small town, and public high school the thought of a small private, Catholic college was intimidating! With the prices of a private education being quite a bit more risky then a public, SMC is by far the place to be!

With the thought of being in debt, I am still so happy that I chose to come here with this loving and accepting environment!
Ashley from Shelburne, NH
It's a private school, so it is a bit pricey, but they take great care of their students, staff, and campus. The food is awesome, all areas are clean, the campus is beautiful, there are activities for every type of student. They have extraordinary professors who love what they do, incredible Study Abroad program, as well as an extremely helpful Financial Aid office.
Sydney from Warrenton, VA
Though the school is a private college, they offer many scholarship and work study opportunities, as well as tutoring jobs, and jobs on campus. There are many benefits of paying a little more to go to ski here, such as the extremely inexpensive ski pass, numerous free events, and unlimited meal plan for those living in dorms.
Laura from RIVERSIDE, RI
It is very expensive, I have student loans and a lot of them! However, I plan on staying all four years and have no doubts about it, it's worth every penny.
