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.

What Students Are Saying

3.45 Average Rating
This is definitely the a great school! You get more than what you pay for. If your living in Utah County this is a school that should be considered. The tuition is cheap and no matter where you live in Utah county it isn't that long of a drive if you wanted to live at home while attending.

Most universities cost above $4,000 a semester, UVU is only around $2,000 a semester, and there are a bunch of cheap on campus restaurants and activities for FREE!! Just the simple fact that I will be attending a university that has multiple masters degree programs for as little money possible is amazing!
Alexis from South Jordan, UT
The education you may receive is great for the average price for tuition etc.
Natalie from Spanish Fork, UT
Excellent bang considering the buck is relatively cheap (around $2500/semester for in-state students, and $7500 for out of state students).
Kaitlin from Eagle Mountain, UT
Everything is moderately priced on campus. The only overly priced store on campus would have to be the campus bookstore. Tuition is very good too even out of state. If you can get in state that would be best, the price lowers drastically.
Rebecca from Sagamore Beach, MA
I loved UVU, and my prerequisite for any new school I attend is that it has to be compared to my experiences at UVU. I loved the sense of community it brought, the friendships I made, and the education I received. What more could be worth your time and money?
Kalli from Arlington, VA
UVU is one of the cheapest colleges, but has a lot of the best programs, like the Dentist and Nursing programs, and even the Education programs, are best in the state.
Rachel from Provo, UT
First of all, this HAS to be one of the least expensive schools in the US! My tuition is usually around $2500 a semester, but that's for 19 credit hours... For 9, it's more like $1200. But think of it this way: Not only are you paying for an instructor, you're paying for a friend, and possibly a future reference/stepping stool into the career of your choice... It's not half bad.
Sarah from Pleasant Grove, UT
I ended up having to take a year off to get Utah residency because out of state tuition was so expensive, but after starting school here, I can tell you it was way worth it. I'm a full-time student and my tuition ends up around 2400 after my class and lab fees. And it's worth every dollar. I am learning more than I am paying.
Natasha from Orem, UT
College will always be expensive. But overall it was worth the money.
