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.

At Winthrop, you will get your money's worth. the campus is beautiful, the facilities are outstanding, and the basketball/baseball/'whatever sport you're into' are free to attend!
Sarah from Columbia, SC
A teacher I had my first semester here said, Winthrop is like the beauty parlor of SC universities. You get private school attention for a public school price. It's a small school and the teacher to student ratio is very comforting.
Molly from Summerville, SC
As for aesthetic value, Winthrop is definitely worth it! The historic construction of the buildings make you cherish the school even more. The campus is truly beautiful. If you ever get tired of cafeteria food, there are plenty of place near campus that suit your fancy. =)
Nontombe from Columbia, SC
Like I said, the professors are highly experienced, and in many cases acclaimed in their fields. Plus, the class sizes are small. As a student at Winthrop you get one on one attention from the best of the best.
Rachel from Lexington, SC
For the education department you cannot get any better than Winthrop for money. Winthrop is rated as one of the leading South Eastern Teaching colleges and we can back it up. We get experience from day one in the classrooms of local schools with real teachers and students. As you become more established in the field and understanding of the education program you truly understand why Winthrop is rated so highly.
Chelsea from Columbia, SC
The money you pay to go to Winthrop is worth it if you are dedicated to your work and actually learn what the professors are trying to teach you.
Eric from Rock Hill, SC
The campus is absolutely gorgeous and it has everything you could possibly want. It has an amazing gym with all sorts of fitness equipment and rooms for various activities. It has a nice cafeteria and extra food court in Dinkins with a wide variety. We have a movie theater and lots of space outdoors for group activities or playful sports.
