Students at BYU enjoy affordable prices that allow them access to a high quality education at a great price. In 2013, US News & World Report ranked BYU in the top 20 for ‘Great Schools, Great Prices.’
As BYU’s sponsor, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints subsidizes tuition prices with its members’ tithing funds. In principle, each student attending BYU is on scholarship.
For the 2013-2014 academic year, BYU’s undergraduate tuition for LDS students is $4,850 ($9,700 for non-LDS students), regardless of where they are from.
Considering that College Board reports the average private four-year tuition and fees as over $29,000, BYU’s price tag cannot be beat. Each year, undergraduate students at BYU pay nearly $24,000 less in tuition than other private universities.
For BYU students, the cost of room and board is a large part of total expenses. As such, it is important to make the decision that’s right for you.
