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

4.01 Average Rating
You're pretty much guaranteed some sort of scholarship when you come here. You have a 80 - 90% chance of getting full tuition and Room & Board isn't too much more to worry about. I missed a few scholarships because of how late I applied but if you apply early you have so much more scholarship availability than if you miss early registration.

This school is very high-quality, but it is also very pricey. Being a private school, the cost of attendance is in the $30,000/year range, but the financial aid office is very helpful in trying to get you the best finacial aid package possible. The professors are amazing and try to explain the coursework in a way that you understand. Almost all of the professors also try to incorporate the Christian faith into their classes, and it is amazing to me that we can pray at the start of class everyday. The housing is fairly modern, the class material is up-to-date, and the school is in the process of designing a new Science and Nursing building. The campus is pretty small, but we have room to grow. The ASB just finished remodeling a room to use as a weight room, which is now open to all students.

Simpson isn't the cheapest school, but it's well worth the price you pay. They offer lots of financial aid too.

Admissions counselors were really helpful at finding scholarships.

It's a very friendly and diverse environment to all people.

My husband was transferred here from Texas, where the people are very friendly and easy to get along with. I was nervous that this California school would portray the labeled Californian attitude, but to my surprise, I felt I was back in Texas. Everyone from students, professors, and administration are extremely wonderful and easy to talk to, as well as work with.
Randy from Shingletown, CA
The education, the campus, and the student to staff ratio is well worth the money that I am paying to attend this school!
