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

3.82 Average Rating
The 26k tuition is a staggering door price but the services, the atmosphere, faculty, students, and the experience are worth so much more!
Curtis from Northfield, MN
the financial aid team is super nice. merit scholarships are available especially for freshmen but also for transfer students. i think the price is worth it.
PurpleDolphin
For a private Christian setting and education, the price isn't too bad! But the reason for only 3 stars is because of their cavalier attitude about the cost of Union and how easy it is to pay for school. Even with student loans, federal aid, and a small scholarship you get from Union, you'll need start looking for scholarships as soon as possible to help make up the difference.
SK from Kansas
While an education at Union College is quite pricey, I definitely agree that it is worth every last cent.
