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

3.79 Average Rating
This school was probably the best option for me because they help out any way with financial aid down to problems in classes. This school is well diverse. The classes are very interesting. It is truly a great place to learn.
Kimberly from Albany, NY
You definitely get what you pay for (and beyond) at this college, academically and with extracurricular activities.
Megan from Schuylerville, NY
You're going to feel like its not worth it sometimes, but it is.
Allison from Nashua, NH
Sage is quite costly but it is definitely worth it. They are pretty hefty with financial aid which is good. The dorms are very nice. The freshman dorms are quite large and have a sink, counters, cabinets, and closets in them. This is different from other schools. The other dorms are old Victorian houses that they turned into dorms that are absolutely gorgeous. You have your own kitchen in them so you can cook your own food and it's just like living in a house.
