When you visit this campus, or move in, you might look around and think, “Boy, this campus is small!” Walk west for a few minutes and you’re at the Keuka College bookstore, walk north and you’re at Hegeman Hall, south and you’re at Dahlstrom Hall. If you walk a few minutes past Dahlstrom, you’ll get to the JMW Recreation and Athletics Center. And, if you go straight east, you might just get your feet wet in one of New York’s famous finger lakes. The Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance is perched just at the top of Lake Keuka.

Tuition Cost & Financial Aid

The total costs for college are made up of tuition, books, supplies, room/board, and other expenses. This total is around $50,362. Luckily, your family isn’t likely to have to pay the entire amount because of the availability of financial aid for students. After financial aid is applied, the cost that remains is called the average net price. For a recent academic year, this was $25,402. And, since financial aid is available is differing amounts depending on your income, the lower your annual income, the lower the average net price. In a recent year it broke down as follows: families earning less than $30,000 paid around $19,600, Families earning between $48,001 and $75,000 paid around $23,936, and families earning more than $110,001 paid $29,941.

Financial aid, if you qualify, can pay for a large portion of the total cost. Almost every freshman student (99%) received grant or scholarship aid averaging $23,588. The same percentage of students received an average of $19,223 in institutional grants or scholarships.

Were you aware that every college and university in the US maintains a statistic called the retention rate? This is a measure of the number of first-time students who return to the college for their second year of school.

The five most-popular degree programs at Keuka College are public administration and social service professions; health professions and related programs; business, management, marketing, and related support services; homeland security, law enforcement, firefighting, and related protective services; and foreign languages, literatures, and linguistics.
