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

4.23 Average Rating
WJU gives out a lot of money if you have good grades and have a good ACT/SAT score. They also give some money if you are from a Catholic high school.
Kristen from North Olmsted, OH
Though the school's size means individualized learning, it also leads to a lack of some programs.
Likewise, while the academics are rigorous and there are many activities to take part in during one's free time, the expenses of the school are somewhat high. However, Jesuit is generous with scholarships, particularly if you did well on your ACT/SAT.
Anthony
While the academics is rigorous and there is normally many activities to participate in, the expenses of the school are quite high and many students must work to afford it, even with many scholarships.
Kyle from Barnesville, OH
It is extremely worth the cost.
