Regis Tuition Cost & Financial Aid

The price that Regis charges you and your parents can be broken down into sticker price (tuition) and the total cost of your education. This includes tuition (in- or out-of-state), books, supplies, room and board, and other various charges. This total comes out to around $55,508 on average.

After financial aid kicks in and pays for some of that amount, there’s likely going to be some remaining. This is called the average net price. As of a recent academic year, this was $27,565 on average. Of course, this depends on how much financial aid you receive, which in turn depends on their yearly income. Families earning a lower annual income end up paying a smaller amount and families earning more pay more.

  • Families earning up to $30,000 pay around $20,626
  • Families earning between $30,001 and $48,000 pay around $21,747
  • Families earning between $48,001 and $75,000 pay around $22,713
  • Families earning between $75,001 and $110,000 pay around $25,522
  • Families earning more than $110,001 pay around $31,920

First year students who requested financial aid numbered 502. And 501 of those students (99%) of the freshman class received grants or scholarships averaging $23,032. The same number of students received institutional grants and scholarships (aid from Regis University) averaging $19,009 per student.
