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.

For the type of education you get, you get a great deal on it. Kids from all over the U.S. praise how great of a deal Utah State is for the education you receive.
Alexis from Heber City, UT
I am getting every dollars worth that I have spent in going to Utah State.
Jessica Trettin from Wildomar, CA
I believe that Utah State is one of the cheapest University's in Utah. With all the raises with school prices Utah State only went up 200 dollars. The books well those aren't so cheap but there are LOTS of other resources to get books. Housing is pretty easy to find. There are LOTS of apartments to choose from and they are pretty cheap. On Campus housing is pretty great for the first year.
emily from West Bountiful, UT
As an out-of-state student and kin of alumni, I was awarded a great scholarship that covered all out-of-state fees. The quality of my education, the social benefits, and the location of USU are all well worth what I pay!
Conor from Brookings, SD
There are good scholarships here and the tuition is definitely worth it.
Julie from Morgan Hill, CA
I pay out-of-state tuition at USU and it is an amazing price! I pay as much going to USU as I would in-state tuition back home! Gaining residency is easy to do and then the cost is unbeatable, less than $4,000!!! For the amout of money you pay here, you get so much more out of it, USU hosts so many free activities and events it's incredible! Definitely worth it!
Amber from Logan, UT
I have never regretted making the choice to make Utah State my home and my school! I have friends who have attended others schools in and out of state and they are always complaining about something. I have always been able to find the help and resources I've needed to continue my education and I am so pleased with the way I am treated here. Scholarships are relatively simple to receive here as well, as long as you are up to the hard-work and dedication that Utah State is known for.
An Aggie from Logan, UT
Utah State is cheap, comparatively. The on campus dorms are nice and cheap and you get all utilities paid for. You can get lots of discounts in town cause everyone is an Aggie!
Mckenzie from SLC, UT
Utah State is one of the cheaper schools in Utah, while still being one of the highest in quality. There are many opportunities for scholarships at the beginning of school and then through whichever major you choose.
