Tuition, fees, room and board rates are established annually in the winter for the succeeding year. Prices are moderated through the generosity of friends and alumni of the University and the supporting denomination who annually contribute more than 25% of the University’s operating costs. As a result, tuition and fees cover only 75% of the direct costs of educating students.

In addition, many students are provided financial assistance in meeting the price of attending the University. Approximately 90% of the students receive financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, loans or work-study assistance. Such assistance is primarily available only to those who file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by the preferred submission date and is usually limited to full-time students in good standing.
