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

3.47 Average Rating
The University of Bridgeport is a very expensive school. They have different types of ways of paying for college such as scholarshps, grants, and many different types of loans.
Alicia from Brooklyn, NY
this school is very expensive and except you have up to 40,000 a year i wouldn't advice you to go. get financial aid and confirmed scholarships before you go or else you might find yourself out of school with no transcript and nowhere to go.
eta from Brooklyn, NY
This school is so expensive. If you do well in high school they provide you with amazing scholarships, but if you slacked off a bit I would look into financial aid. At 42K a year, things begin to add up. It's worth it though, it's a private school with an amazing education and we get discounts at Subway because the CEO graduated from UB. That's just one example of what you can become with a UB education and some will-power.
Rachael from Torrington, CT
I feel I'm getting the same (if not better) education I would be if I attended FIT in NYC. And I'm saving money and still close to my family, which is so important to me. These are tough economic times for everyone and I don't want to graduate with a huge debt! I work part time in retail so I'm using what I'm learning every day.
