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

3.69 Average Rating
Even though the dorm prices are a little high it is still worth the money. You get out a lot more than you put in at this school and because it is one of the cheapest schools in louisiana, they do not break your back when it comes time to pay your dues.
Nia from Houston, TX
This school is considerably cheaper than most other schools I looked into attending. They also have smaller class sizes than other public colleges in the area and have some strong departments. As a whole the school is worth looking into because even with such a low tuition, there are many perks included with the price.
Christine from Lafayette, LA
The residue of economic thought filters through every bureaucracy. Universities are no different from movie theaters in that they all just want your money.
Jonathan from Brusly, LA
The cost for out of state student is CHEAP!!!! If your from out of state...I would advise you to look at this college for the cheap price. In state, it is still pretty good for us.
Amber from Lafayette, LA
There are a lot of complaints about the slow rising of tuition and fees here and UL Lafayette, however, it is one of the less expensive schools in Louisiana. Paying a little over $7,000 dollars, I get to live on campus in an apartment with my two best friends, eat 12 meals a week (including weekends) in the Cafeteria, and with declining balance eat at any other food place on campus. Living in the dorms, you got nice facilities, a great room, and free access to Washers and Dryers. I also get to enter any of the UL Lafayette home sporting events for free as well as free transportation to and from such school sponsored events and south campus by bus during the day. A shuttle brings students to south campus as well as anywhere else on campus at night until 12 midnight . Being a Ragin Cajun also gains you entrance into the newly renovated recreation hall with pool and rock wall. I am given an Academic Advisor to assist me with scheduling and access to a wealth of information in our school library.

Have I mentioned that ULL is super affordable !
Kayla from Baton Rouge, LA
quality education except for the english departrment.
Garth from New Iberia, LA
Due to state wide budget cuts, some classes are only offered in either the spring or the fall semester, not both like most colleges. This can be challenging when trying to schedule required courses since class numbers are typically small.
