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

4.18 Average Rating
The University of Scranton utilizes the money you pay very well. They have a top notch tutoring center. It provides many other services also, such as help with computers, essays/papers, etc. They have a wellness center and volunteer office. We have a great gym and recreational area, along with an outside sand volleyball pit, soccer field, tennis courts, and basketball court. Also, they have a new business building and will soon begin construction of the new science building. These are just the few things I can list off the top of my head. Overall, the University of Scranton is well worth your money.
Shrut from Dalton, PA
It is a lot of money but if you have the grades they are very generous in their scholarships and in the end you will be paying for quality
James from Conyngham, PA
The University of Scranton, although very expensive, gives you a lot in return. Just like the saying, what you put in, is what you'll get out. You really do get a lot from the school.
Katelyn from Allentown, PA
Though tuition is a bit high, it is well worth it! The Scranton experience is unlike any other. Courses are designed to push you to your potential and more than prepare you for graduate or professional school. The comfortable environment also adds value, with everyone involved on campus seeking to make the area both safe and homey.
Laura from Peckville, PA
The University has a high acceptance rate into medical schools, dental schools, and graduate programs. I believe that it is worth the money.
