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.

In-State Tuition In-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who meet the state's or institution's residency requirements. In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.

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

3.88 Average Rating
TU is definitely really expensive, but not if you get a lot of scholarships. But SA is always funding awesome stuff, parties, free shirts, and tonight we have a free on-campus concert that Imagine Dragons is performing live at, pretty sweet TU!
Caroline from Saint Louis, MO
This will come in the long run when your degree from this university will be attractive to potential employers. When joining clubs or organizations, you will also find that the university covers activities and excursions. For example, as a member of the pep band, I went for free to the NCAA tournament in San Diego when the basketball team qualified. I know the same is true for some journalism students as well as the outdoor club.
Erin from Springfield, MO
It is a little pricey, but the education here is top-notch!
Samuel from O Fallon, IL
TU is expensive in comparison to a state school, but the education is much more valuable. More than half the student body has some form of scholarship from TU, and quite a few students have full scholarships. Because of the connections TU has, it is easy to get an internship even as a freshman. Some internships pay as much as an entire semester of tuition, making it definitely worth it.
Jessica from St Augustine, FL
The college is a little priceynut it really is a great school.
Alyssa from Lebanon, IL
TU can get pretty pricey, but you are getting a first rate education. We are often called the Harvard of the Midwest, and that is certainly true. The teachers are all passionate about what they teach, so its worth it. And TU offers some pretty excellent scholarships (i.e. any national merit scholar gets free tuition.)
