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

3.47 Average Rating
It is definitely worth it to come and get an education while having fun as well!
Melinda from Alexandria, LA
As an out of state student, if you have good ACT scores and a good GPA you will qualify for in-state tuition which makes it a great bang for the buck for me.
Jaci from McDonough, GA
Scholarship opportunities vary greatly at SU! For each major there are either generous scholarships or grand internships! Take advantage of any money that is being GIVEN to you! A free education is way better than no education!
Kaylyn from Leesville, LA
There is plenty of money/scholarships available. You just have to find them and apply for them. Don't let it all go to waste.
Cassie from Greensburg, LA
Get your money's worth. Some students may get frustrated and overwhelmed with college, but if you actually do the math, you're being paid to go to college and in the end you'll be the one getting paid for your skills acquired from college. Don't waste time, a lazy hand is for a poor man, a diligent hand holds wealth.
kayla from Baton Rouge, LA
Southern in Cheap!!! lol. Compared to most other schools, the fees are not excessive, although there are many including myself who cannot pay out of pocket.
