Cost & Financial Aid

Affordable Tuition. Excellent Value.

College is an investment in your future, but our goal is to give you an outstanding education at a reasonable cost. A quality education doesn’t have to come with sticker stock. You'll find our costs to be competitive with those of other top-tier universities.

Financial Aid

Funding an education at any level can be a challenge. We offer a range of financial aid opportunities to assist with costs, including federal programs, scholarships, grants, loans and work-study.
