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.

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.

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

3.53 Average Rating
Tuskegee is a school like no other and that I can say proudly. We're ranked the Number 1 HBCU in Alabama. The lessons that I learn both inside and outside of the classroom are preparing me for the Real World. However I have found issues that make me question my decision on coming here. For starters the living situations are not the best, administrator's in the Bursar's office will give you a hassle, and I am envious of Auburn's Student Union and library. Many of the books in our main library are outdated and there are not enough things in our Union to hold every one's interest.

now dont get me wrong tuskegee is a great school but theres gonna be times where you get fed up with how much you have to pay compared to the service you get. but its all part of the experience and will make you better off in the long run
Gabriel from Tuskegee, AL
Yes Tuskegee cost a pretty dollar but I believe the experiences and education is like no other.
Keiasha from Tuskegee, AL
As high as the tuition is, with scholarships and grants from the university and outside sources Tuskegee actually became my least expensive choice. It is a private school so money is a major issue but if you made good grades in high school you shouldn't let the sticker shock deter you and see how much you can get from the school before you make your final decision. There's definitely money out there.
Indya from Columbus, GA
This institution is private so the tuition is the same for in-state and out-of-state students. In the long run once you have that cap and gown and your degree you will think everything was worth it.
Dana from CA
The tuition may seem high, but for everything that you are offered and given it is well worth every dollar. From the resources open to each student, the gyms, the cafe, tutoring all of these resources make it well worth the money.

It is worth it but you have to make sure you stay on time of administration. Sometimes they have trouble keeping important documents that hold you back from being financially cleared. But for the quality education we are receiving it is worth it.
Kelly from Detroit, MI
considering the cost of the school, the location, and the hands on experiences, i feel the university provides its students with a stimulating and worthwhile learning experience.
