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

It is a very expensive school but you will get your money's worth.
Sarah from Tampa, FL
the university of tampa provides a lot of activities, counseling resources, a great clinic, good food, and wonderful residence halls. the professors are all highly professional and trained, and are willing to talk to students outside of class. the small class sizes really make the cost of ut worth it because you are able to discuss issues with your professors and you are more than just a face in the crowd to them. nearly two years after taking an honors english course, my professor still waves to me if we cross on campus, and asks how i am doing.
Rachael from Belgium
The University of Tampa is one of the most expensive schools I applied for. I could have gone to a much cheaper school. But with everything I'm learning and how much I enjoy college, I'd say it's worth it. The only problem is trying to get all the financial aid I can get.
Caitlin from Clearwater, FL
I believe I am getting the best education possible. University of Tampa is a private school with a lot of class.
MICHAEL from Spring Hill, FL
University of Tampa is a private school, so it is pricy, but compared to private school back home (in Connecticut) this was much more affordable.
Sarah from Wethersfield, CT
The college is very expensive. The campus is gorgeous though. It could definitely be cheaper, especially the meal plan. The teachers are awesome though and I have definitely learned a lot.

It is pretty expensive, but remember--it is a private school. There are a lot of financial aid opportunities including scholarships and grants.
Sharon from Long Island, NY
The university is quite a pretty penny, but worth every cent of it! I wouldn't wish to spend my money any other way. The residence halls to the classrooms, the tuition money is spent well!
