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

3.92 Average Rating
An expensive school, but if you do well in high school you will get decent financial aid. The money spent is used to give students more late night programs throughout the week and getting bigger name performers on campus.
Tom from VT
I have saved a lot of money because I live at home and commute, however a lot of my friends say that the amount is well worth it for the high education and all the fun and extra things they provide. Such as comedians, movie night, a full gym, cafe, and other activities.
Donna-Jo from Albion, ME
It is for a college that is not state subsidized and so the dorms and the meal plan do cost extra but other then that it's cost effective
