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

3.74 Average Rating
You get a great education here. The class sizes are small enough that the professors get to know you better than just a number in the class.
Emily from Lehi, UT
suu is a great value for your money. small class size, great professor-student relations, a beautiful campus, wonderful professors, and tons of opportunities, all the benefits of a larger school at the price of a small college.
T from Springville, UT
it is comparable to a private institution at a public school's cost.
Chelsea from Draper, UT
Bang for the buck? Money? Well, SUU creates a ONE-on-ONE attention with your professors. Remember when I said that a class could be more than 20 people? Well, I had one of those classes and I was really shocked when my professor called out my name. I didn't expect him to know my name from a large group like the one I had. The tuition isn't that pretty but it is totally worth the money you pay. The professors don't teach here for the money and let the students do what they want. They teach the students because they want to see them succeed. When you have a problem, any staff member could help. Man! I thought I wouldn't get my money's worth of education, but I got more than that. And so could you.
Karen Criselda from Las Vegas, NV
Private Attention at Public Value. It's so true! I am hardly in a class that I feel like I am just a face or number. I am paying a public institution's tuition rate and feel like I am getting amazing one-on-one attention from my professors.
Brianna from Helper, UT
Tuition is cheap- less than 3,000 for instate students.
The City is small which makes gas more affordable.
Nearly every week there are events going on for free!
Students have access to everything on campus for free (excluding the food court, rock wall, and weights gym).
Students have the opportunity to engage is resume building activities (service)
There is a tangible atmosphere of learning!
Classes are intentionally restricted in size; hence, students can have one on one time with their professors!
-St. George is only 45 minutes away and Las Vegas 1.5-3 hours depending on who is driving.
Crystal from Nibley, UT
For the education and amenities at SUU the price is very well worth it.
Bradley from Stansbury Park, UT
Money is tough. Point blank period. I learned a great lesson my first year. I didn't think that money was going to be THAT big of a deal, but being out of state, tution is so much higher for me. The best thing to do, is to apply for scholarships EVERY SINGLE DAY! Fill out at least 10-15 a week, at the very least. Applying for scholarships is like a job. It takes time but think about it: for every hour you spend applying for scholarships, if you win a $500 scholarship, you just got paid 500 bucks an hour! Take it from someone who didn't take it seriously my first semester. Scholarships are VERY important and HARD to get. The sooner you start, the better!
