UE Tuition Cost & Financial Aid

The question of how much your education may cost you and your family may be on your mind. You and your parents know that a college education is a good investment and the money you and they spend for your education will likely be well-spent. The total price is made up of your tuition, books, room and board, supplies, and other various costs. This comes out to $53,676.

Your financial aid can cover a big portion of that cost, but you and your family will have to pay for what’s left. What’s left after financial aid has been applied is called the average net price. Because the amount of financial aid you receive will vary depending on your family’s income, the average net price you end up being responsible for will also vary depending on your family’s income. For instance, a family earning $30,000 or less will pay around $15,212, a family earning between $75,001 and $100,000 will pay around $24,548 and a family earning more than $110,001 pays $26,585.

The full freshman class qualified for financial aid in a recent school year. On average, students received grants and scholarships at an average of $28,279 and they received an average of $24,976 in institutional grants and scholarships.

If you do decide to continue your college education there, you become part of a statistic for the university called the retention rate. This tracks the percentage of freshmen students who decide to stay for their second year. This number is 84%, which is excellent, higher than average, and indicates that the students who attend their freshmen year get everything they need and want out of their college experience.

The graduation rate is pretty good as well: the 4-year graduation rate is 55%, only a little below the national average and the 6-year graduation rate is a little higher at 68%, above the national average. Students who are getting close to graduation may decide to extend their time at the university because they switched majors in the middle of their four years or because they have been attending part-time so that they could work.

The five most popular degree programs offered here are business, management, marketing and related services; health professions and related programs; engineering; parks, recreation, leisure, and fitness studies; and visual and performing arts. While you may choose a different major, the programs mentioned here have been the most popular for other students pursuing degrees.
