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.

Tuition
In-State Tuition In-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who meet the state's or institution's residency requirements. In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.
$33,820
Out-of-State Tuition Out-of-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who do not meet the state’s or institution’s residency requirements. Out-of-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students not residing in the locality in which they attend school.

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

3.91 Average Rating
I must say that tuition is always a huge importance in choosing a school. As well if the school has an expensive tuition rate, that does not necessarily imply how good of a school it is. But with a tuition of about $30,000 a year at Thiel College, my first year has been worth every penny of it. I didn't know how I would pay for school, but that was beyond my control. I can honestly say that my education is well worth the buck!

The school is very expensive, but the education that I've received from Thiel makes it worth it. The professors are great, and so are most of the students. The overall environment is good. The library is an excellent source for academic help, and every professor has flexible office hours.
The Liberal Arts edcuation you receive from Thiel is definitely going to get you ahead of fellow competitors when applying for a job. That, and all the opportunities for netwoking you have.

There are many free activities for all students. All sports activities are free to attend for students. There is a movie that shows in one of the nice lecture halls 2 times a week (they are movies often not released on DVD yet, or recently released). There are usually random things that the activities club sets up like bounce houses, slip-n-slides, mechanical bulls, etc. that will just appear around campus sometimes. There is a concert every spring and many bus trips throughout the year that are both free. The concerts usually are famous singers (like maklemore and flo rider). The bus trips are to places like Chicago, Boston, New York, Cedar Point, White Water rafting, Snow Tubing, etc.There is also a free shuttle service that will take you anywhere you want in Greenville (everyday), or anywhere in Hermatige, Sharon, Grove City etc. on weekends. It will also make monthly trips to places like Pittsburgh and Cleveland.
