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

4.61 Average Rating
It's expensive, but the Financial Aid department is wonderful and merit aid is available.
Irina from San Rafael, CA
I was awarded a merit scholarship (the James E. Scripps Scholarship) which covers half of my tuition plus room and board with a no loan guarantee. I am currently receiving almost $18,000 in grants from the college on top of the ~$24,000 scholarship because my particular need is high. If you're a good high school student, apply early for this opportunity! College is surprisingly affordable for me and my large family because of it! Even if you aren't awarded scholarships, they still do a very good job with financial aid. It's easy to write a letter to David Levy and explain extraneous circumstances that might not show up on paperwork, and after my family did they adjusted our award accordingly.
Summer from Rancho Cucamonga, CA
There are so many more resources available to you at Scripps that really make it easy to see where your money is going to. The faculty, resources, and quality of life is extrememly amazing at Scripps.
Haley from Seattle, WA
Financial aid is generously given at Scripps and they are very understanding of every situation and try to accommodate you accordingly.
Zaneh from Clinton, MD
According to some big hats as well.
Shane from Orlando, FL
Scripps offers merit scholarships, in addition to need-based financial aid, and now all applicants are considered for these scholarships. I am a James E. Scripps scholar, and the New Generation scholarship is an incredibly generous opportunity for first-generation college students.
