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

3.65 Average Rating
Montevallo is one of the more economical schools in Alabama. It is worth every penny to live on campus and to attend a school that is so interpersonal with each and every student.
Anna from Birmingham, AL
Some of the the dorms are better than others, depending on how well the students have treated the buildings. Not to say that they aren't clean, but places like Napier may seem pretty bad because most of the guys aren't big on cleaning up after themselves.
Rachel from Birmingham, AL
My family is currently strapped financially, so the estimated cost of attendance for me is a very crucial factor in choosing a university. Montevallo is not very expensive, and the educational opportunities here are plentiful, so I believe that you will get your money's worth for attending this college.
Patricia from Brewton, AL
If you have an average-income family, then you will get by alright with a scholarship and some loans. A lot of different majors that I've encountered have all seemed quite happy with their education here and I would have to agree. Montevallo is not insanely expensive and will not fail to impress.
Catherine from Cropwell, AL
The money that I have put into this University is most definitely worth it.
Alexandria from Alabaster, AL
I feel like the quality of UM's education is extremely under-priced. It would be nearly impossible to find such a small, quality, liberal arts education at the price UM offers.
