We take pride in providing our students a significant return on investment.

Ninety-eight percent of our students receive some type of financial aid, including, on average, $18,500 in institutional gift aid. That funding comes from many sources: merit-based scholarships, need-based grants, loans, work study and scholarships from outside organizations to help meet costs.

We encourage you to try our Net Price Calculator to learn more about potential financial aid and estimate the net cost of attendance.
