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

3.75 Average Rating
It's not too expensive, and they offer a lot of scholarships. They even have scholarships that one is guaranteed to get if one has a certain ACT and GPA, starting with a 3.0 GPA and 25 ACT (or equivalent SAT). The smallest of these guaranteed scholarships give $2,100 per year. The largest gives full tuition for up to 15 hours per semester, housing, a meal plan, $500 dollars in course fees, and a book stipend. They also offer a lot of other scholarships.

Huntsville is also home to the NASA space center for those students who may be interested in touring off campus locations.
Ben from Sterrett, AL
The current president of UAH, Dave Williams, has a goal to increase the enrolled students by roughly 1500 in the next year. This is causing tuition rates to rise, meal plans to be mandatory, and on-campus housing for both freshman and sophomores to be mandatory as well. While these alterations are pushing some students away, others are looking past the current changes as hope for future students at the university. With the completion of the new dormitory in the Fall of 2010, on campus living is becoming safer, easier, and more fun.
Sarah from Tullahoma, TN
You will pay a little more for such a small school, but will definitely get your education out of it.
Britt from Decatur, AL
A lot of the people I know attend this school on scholarship. I must say that the school really is generous with it's money and I've barely had to pay anything to come here (apart from housing). Obviously this school isn't huge, but I think it is on the road to becoming much larger. You can achieve a real college experience here without paying a huge amount, and that's worth so much.
Candace from Madison, AL
uah has a smaller campus and is almost as expensive as the bigger universities in alabama such as alabama in tuscaloosa or uab. for science, math, computer, or engineer majors this school is worth the cash. however, dorms and meal plans are somewhat overpriced.
