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
UA tuition is going up, but I still think it's worth it. I wouldn't be going there if I didn't!
Alexis from Phoenix, AZ
I'm out of state, but their out of state scholarship makes it almost in state price and it's a lot cheaper than private schools! The private school I was looking at gave me a larger scholarship and was still about 20 thousand more a year. Also they sent their undergraduates here for research! Including my major they have many programs that are ranked very high in the country, I won't list them because I know they advertise them.
Kristy from small town, NY
Budget cuts are going into effect but the administration is doing everything they can to keep from tuition raising. It is the highest priced university in Arizona but educationally it exceeds. If you are looking for the best education in Arizona than it is well worth the tuition.
Sarah from Scottsdale, AZ
It is expensive to go to college, finding used text books and living with family is cheap and you will have extra cash to spend!
Freshman
Tuition is raising, but coming from California where budget cuts are terrible, and students can't get classes, Arizona is a dream come true. You are guaranteed English and Math classes, so you don't have to worry when registering for those. Also, living here is extremely cheap, so after freshman year, you can find apartments for almost any price and within a few miles of campus.
Marie from San Diego, CA
I am an in-state student, so the tuition isn't quite as high as many other people will be paying. For what I pay for though, I get a fantastic education and really learn a lot. There are still some classes here and there that truly don't feel like college classes and are either too easy or not important/interesting in the slightest.
Matthew from Tucson, AZ
If you use the resources that are available on campus like ThinkTank and resources that help with individual financial struggles and fully utilize the on-campus services like SafeRide, your college experience will definitely be worth the money that you invested into each of your classes. It also is completely dependent on the amount of effort that you put into making your college experience the best that it can possibly be that truly improves the fulfillment of you bucks.
Madeline from Denver, Colorado
For how inexpensive it is, you get a great education. The scholarships awarded to in-state and out-of-state students are great. I get over half my tuition paid for and I'm from out of state!
