Making College Affordable

Value. It’s a small word, but it can mean big things. We would argue that the value of a Lenoir-Rhyne education far exceeds its price tag. We also recognize that a college education is often one of the most significant investments a family makes. In our view, affordability should not be a barrier to enrollment.

Every student deserves access to an affordable education. We have the resources to make it happen.

Cost of Attendance


It’s the big question on every prospective college student’s mind: how much is tuition and room and board?

The cost of attendance is determined based on what financial aid you receive (scholarships, grants, loans, etc.) and your expected family contribution. 

To get a better understanding on your estimated cost of attendance, be sure to visit our Net Price Calculator, which will provides estimates on what you can expect based on your specific personal circumstances.

For me, the most memorable part of LR student life is the endless clubs and organizations. I have been able to find smaller communities within the Bear community that has welcomed me with open arms.
