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

3.54 Average Rating
Compared to other schools, you save an incredible amount of money. Cost for books are very cheap in total because they have their own textbook library where you can sign them out under your name. You only ever have to pay for the books if you damage them or return them late.
Medford, WI
River Falls tuition is well priced, and you get what you paid for in triple fold.
Whitney from Phillips, WI
River falls is completely worth the money. The professors are amazing! They are extremely helpful and again the organizations are amazing. It is a great small campus.
Aspen from Woodville, WI
If you really want to keep a textbook for the background that is in it, you can usually buy one at the end of the semesters, especially when textbook services switches to a newer edition.

there is a lot of extra activities to choose from at this school. there are events and activities all the time, and they spread the worb about them pretty efficiently.
Krysta from River Falls, WI
Definitely worth every penny of my tuition!! I also love that textbooks are rented to students as a part of tuition - it saves SO much time and money! I would say, though, that housing and meal plan are a little spendy for what you get for your money.
Kelly from Brooklyn Park, MN
At River Falls you will definitely get what you pay for. The nicest part is that you don't have to buy your textbooks, which will save you a ton of money. The teachers are very educated and have a lot of experience in their field.
