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

4.11 Average Rating
I'm not sure what other schools cost but I do know that what I am paying for it, is definitely worth it. I also know that there are a lot of scholarships out there. You have to do the footwork people!
Toni from Nampa, ID
It's a private school so I was expecting it to be expensive but the college really helped me out with scholarships. The professors are excellent and are always looking out for the student's best interest.
Anna from Idaho Falls, ID
All in all, College of Idaho definitely feels like it lives up to its price. The professors are very friendly and very good at what they do, there's lots of diversity in the things you can study, and it just has a general calm and welcoming feel to it. I'm definitely struggling to keep up with the prices, but the college offers quite a few scholarships to help.
Tori from Pendleton, OR
By no standards is attendance to College of Idaho cheap. It's highly expensive for the average income family, and may be a challenge to afford even with loans. However, the statistics involving success after graduation is remarkable. You definitely are getting the education you pay for, but some costs such as food and residence may be a little excessive.
Sean from Caldwell, ID
Study hard, party hard. There's something here for everyone. Definitely worth every penny.
Cynthia from Boise, ID
You get such an education here as I have previously mentioned. The people make you feel at home right away by taking you on a camping trip to McCall where you get to bond with your class. Everyone here really cares about your success. It's amazing really.
Gabrielle from Parma, ID
Very good education and by far the best you can get in Idaho, but be prepared to pay a lot. Not just for tuition, but for your books, housing, and food as well. They offer scholarships, but they don't often cover everything.
Shayna from Caldwell, ID
While trying to choose a college, I didn't really focus on the money aspect of it, figuring I'd look at that later. College of Idaho is a private school, which automatically makes it a little more spendy than other colleges. However, they also have great scholarship and financial aid options. For example, every year so long as I hold a 2.5 or higher GPA I will get $7,000 for my schooling.
