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

3.57 Average Rating
It's walkable. It's nearby a popular grocery store. It's near the lake too just in case you want to chill with some Nawlin's hot boiled craw fish or fiery boiled shrimp. Southern University at New Orleans is also affordable!
Paulitha from New Orleans, LA
You can receive an education at any school if you put your mind to and apply yourself. Also you should apply for scholarship and grants. Free money is the best money, who want loans.
Tanyell from Harvey, 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.
