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

3.90 Average Rating
Unity is an expensive school, but it's worth it. With it's small class sizes you have a more personal relationship with your professors and the ability for field work. The marine biology majors go on whale watches, the con law students have to find their way off of a mountain, the wildlife biology students go to moose check stations, and much more. You get a lot of experience as well as an amazing education
Jordan from Johnsburg, IL
Living in New Jersey, I do not think Unity's tuition is that high, but you will definitely love it here. Everyone is very chill and relaxed and there are many times where you will be outside conducting work studies and learning things you just wouldn't if you were in a classroom reading from a textbook.
Shelby from Ewing, NJ
Aside from the numerous free activities I listed in our what to do for fun category, our school offers all Microsoft word programs for a $15 steal. The school's student activities and the Outdoor Adventure Center (OAC) provide trips to places like Bar Harbor, Portland, Acadia, a weekend cottage getaway to Cutler Coast and many more are free! The school offers many chances for each student to gain a taste of the different beautiful places that the state of Maine has to offer. In addition to this, the clubs also offer free trips as well! If students cannot afford items like a sleeping bag, a life jacket, a kayak, a canoe, a hiking backpack, or any other camping item, our OAC is able to supply you with these materials for as long as you need! Our library is also able to supply you with any sort of video making equipment necessary for a certain amount of time as well! Our science building is also willing to give any materials needed for a project, such as vials, alcohol, microorganisms, pipettes, and whatever else you may need. In addition to these, our SAC and local restaurants such as Unity's House of Pizza (free delivery), The Purple Cow, the Amish Bakery, and Spanky's Pizza offer a delicious decently sized portion of food for a decent price!

I will admit that it is expensive; however, it offers lots of hands on experience. How many other colleges have labs that include handling animals, training them at the animal shelter, learning first aid, rock climbing, ropes courses, camping, farming, building and Lot's more. If you want to do more than learn, Unity is worth every penny.
Frances from Unity, ME
Unity, at least for me, was pretty expensive. Take advantage of any financial aid and scholarships you can get! The education you get is worth it, for the most part. Many classes are now online (my math class, for example, has online homework from a very expensive textbook). This often makes me wonder why I'm paying so much money, when I could just take an online class!

Some classes here, however, are very unique and make the price worthwhile.

Unity is expensive but I love going to college there.
