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

3.41 Average Rating
Compared to other private colleges, Hartford really does make it affordable to get your degree.

I personally ended up with a pretty nice sized grant, and from what I've heard a lot of other students have too.

So between the financial aid, and things like small class sizes, great professors, and overall quality of the education, I truly believe I'm getting more out of my tuition cost at Hartford than I would at any other college in Connecticut.
Ardit from Watertown, CT
The Hartt School is roughly $40,000 a year, including the individual voice lessons and coachings you receive to help build up your repertoire. I believe it's even more if you're living on campus, but this year I live off-campus close to school and am paying much less for a better quality of living. I'd certainly say this school is worth every penny. Just look at the caliber of our shows.
Lauren from Portsmouth, NH
Warning! Its really expensive, but I wouldn't call it a rip-off. You get so many great things for the price; great food, a huge and quiet library, short commutes to academic and residential areas, lush green scenery, and friendly people. You have to work hard to guarantee your money isn't wasted, but that is essentially what college is about anyway, right?

By the way, when the Hart School of Performance offers concerts, plays, operas, or dance recitals or when there is an athletic event, its free for students. Absolutely free live entertainment!
Averi from Waterbury, CT
Hartford is well known for being extremely generous in the financial aid department. They make it easy for most students to afford a private university.
Sarah R.
Now even though the University has these positive aspects one it's negative aspects is the cost of the school. It is very expensive but the experience you gain here is worth every penny.
Amanda from New York, NY
Its very expensive to go here. Even with a scholarship. Its worth the money, but it cost so much. But you always have to pay more for quality.
