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

3.53 Average Rating
In comparison to other colleges, students will recieve a wonderful education for a decent price. Southern offers several classes and programs for just about everyone
Jessica from East Haven, CT
If you live in Connecticut, Southern is one of the best schools for the money. Out of state students do pay quite a bit more so I am sure there are better options from a out-of-state student if they are looking for a cheap state school.
Max from Naugatuck, CT
The price will be good if you have in in-state tuition. That will be no problem. However, the out of state tuition is very pricey.
Allen from Waterbury, CT
The cost is pretty low for a college. Scholarships would be helpful paying as well. It is even more inexpensive when living off campus as I am.
Amanda from CT
I think that this school is worth my money especially with me being an out of state student. The food is delicious, there are always activities to do and the rooms are spacious. The academic buildings are also newly renovated and they are re-building the library right now to make it bigger.
Brianna from Shirley, NY
The bang for your buck would be, the experienced professors. Not only are they teaching their subjects but they are actually in the fields and can be great networking access for your future careers!
Angela from East Haven, CT
Tuition is at a decent amount and it is definitely worth your money.
