What Students Pay

Percent of Freshmen Receiving Aid by Type   Note: Percentages are for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students enrolled in fall 2019 - 2020. Federal Grants: These monies include Pell Grants and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants made by the U.S. Department of Education as well as need-based and merit-based educational assistance funds and training vouchers from other federal agencies. State/Local Grants: These monies include grants provided by the state to the institution through the LEAP program as well as state merit scholarships and tuition and fee waivers. Local grants are any local government grants, scholarship, or gift-aid awarded directly to the student. Institutional Grants: These monies include scholarships and fellowships funded by the institution and/or individual departments. Also included are tuition and fee waivers and athletic scholarships from the institution. Student Loans: These monies include subsidized and unsubsidized loans made directly to the student, including Perkins Loans. Also included are institutionally- and privately-sponsored loans for which the student is the designated borrower and funds go through the institution. PLUS and other loans for which the parent is the designated borrower are excluded.

Use Our Net Price Calculator   An institution's Net Price Calculator provides an individualized estimate of the net price of attendance for a first-time, full-time aided undergraduate at that institution. The federal definition of net price is as follows: an institution's cost of attendance for first-time, full-time undergraduate students less the total need- and merit-based federal, state and institutional grant aid awarded (i.e., monetary awards that do not have to be paid back) divided by the number of first-time, full-time undergraduate students receiving such aid. The estimates generated by an institution's Net Price Calculator do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price; they are only estimates.

Bachelor’s Degrees Awarded Last Year*   This graphic represents the four majors in which the most bachelor's degrees were awarded between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. The category of “All Others” is the sum of all the other majors earned at the institution in that year. Students with a double major will only be represented by the category of their first major.

Number of Degrees Awarded in 2019   Numbers are for degrees awarded between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019. Bachelor’s: Bachelor’s degrees are any degrees that normally require at least four but not more than five years of full-time equivalent college-level work. This includes ALL bachelor’s degrees awarded in a five-year cooperative (work-study plan) program which provides for alternate class attendance and employment in business, industry, or government and thus allows students to combine actual work experience with their college studies. Also, it includes bachelor’s degrees in which the normal four years of work are completed in three years. Master’s: Master’s degrees require the successful completion of a program of study of at least the full-time equivalent of one but not more than two academic years of study beyond the bachelor’s degree. Some of these degrees, such as those in Theology (ex., M.Div., M.H.L./Rav) that were formerly classified as first-professional degrees, may require more than two full-time equivalent academic years of work. Doctoral Doctoral degrees are the highest award a student can earn for graduate study. There are three categories of Doctoral degrees:
  • Doctor's degree-research/scholarship: Requires advanced work beyond the master's level, including the preparation and defense of a dissertation based on original research, or the planning and execution of an original project demonstrating substantial artistic or scholarly achievement.
  • Doctor's degree-professional practice: A doctor's degree that is conferred upon completion of a program providing the knowledge and skills for the recognition, credential, or license required for professional practice. The degree is awarded after a period of study such that the total time to the degree, including both pre-professional and professional preparation, equals at least six full-time equivalent academic years. Some of these degrees were formerly classified as first-professional and may include: Chiropractic (D.C. or D.C.M.); Dentistry (D.D.S. OR D.M.D.); Law (L.L.B. or J.D.); Medicine (M.D.); Optometry (O.D.); Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.); Pharmacy (Pharm.D.); Podiatry (D.P.M., Pod.D., D.P.); or, Vetrinary Medicine (D.V.M.), and others, as designated by the awarding institution.
  • Doctor's degree-other: A doctor's degree that does not meet the definition of a doctor's degree-research/scholarship or a doctor's degree-professional practice.
