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

3.72 Average Rating
For all incoming freshmen there is some kind of financial aid, which is helpful on ever level including deciding where you want to go. Staying on the campus is worth while if you live around the corner or across the country. The dorms are reasonably sized and they only get better as you get older. If you have a problem with your roomate they will do everything they can to make it better.They have several computer labs and technical centers and everyone is very helpful and friendly. The dinning hall is very good compared to others I've been to. There are lots of choices everyday, a salad bar, a pizza bar, an ice cream bar, a grill where they make what you want right in front of you, there is a sandwhich bar, and a buffet style area. They are very accomidating and the dinning hall is very spacious and a very relaxing setting to be in to eat, to study, or just to hang out with friends.

I won't lie, Saint Rose is expensive, especially so if you're an out-of-state student such as myself, and thus don't qualify for NY Tap aid. The scholarships offered to new students are true to what they claim, but still conservative. And, if you just miss the mark for work study, you'll probably want to find a job around the campus after your first semester or year (once you're acclimated to college life).

Also, NEVER stop searching for scholarships, and don't be afraid to tell Financial Aid that you're in need of more money. They can typically find something to help out, but you're basically on your own to pay for it. That being said, as I noted above you get a fantastic education for what you *do* pay, so it is worth it. Note though that many who do not return for another semester/year do so because they cannot afford to pay.

For the expenses, its well managed. The college maintains its grounds and so on fairly well, and they even just built a new school of business building across from the main campus.
Laura from Little Falls, NY
I would say that this College is pretty expensive, which is what led me to cappex in the first place. I moved off campus, but walking distance because i dont drive & the winters are harsh. My mom pays 10,000 dollars out of pocket and i have taken on some loans. I think tuition is about 28,000 a year. I love the English department but i am not sure if i can stay all four years
Lauren from Bronx, NY
it's an expensive college, but comes with prestige; especially for the education and music industry departments. we're in the top few in the nation for both subjects, which is something you can be proud of and have confidence in while you're sitting through classes.
cydney from albany, ny
The scholarships are great and if you made an attempt in high school chances are you'll get one. This school was way cheaper than any of the others I was looking at (12 mostly in Boston) and because of this I can say that I am getting a great bang for my buck.
Courtney from Southwick, MA
Yes, college is expensive. Saint Rose is not an exception to that, but I think every penny is worth it for the quality education and experiences I am getting here.
Christine from Westfield, MA
It is a private school so in Music for example you have one on one instruction with an applied teacher for your instrument be it voice, wind instrument, guitar or piano. Then you attend Repertoire Class with other students for the same instrument and everyone has to perform in this class setting. Awesome!!!!!. This is mandatory every semester until you graduate.
Lisa from Ballston Spa, NY
Although the college is fairly expensive, the experience and personal touch of the school is well worth it.
