Undergraduate Cost of Attendance
We know that cost is a determining factor in where you attend college. If you estimate your cost of attendance, this provides a more realistic view of preparing for your college experience.
The cost of attendance is an estimate of your educational expenses for enrollment before financial aid. It establishes average prices for different categories of students, such as full-time versus part-time.
In compliance with the Department of Education, indirect costs, including books, transportation and miscellaneous expenses, are added to tuition, fees, food and housing to determine Lenoir-Rhyne’s official total cost of attendance. The average cost of attendance for undergraduate programs for 2023-24 is $48,410.
Food and housing figures are based on a standard double room and the unlimited meal plan. Total actual costs per student may vary depending on food and housing selections. Aggregate financial aid may not exceed the student’s calculated cost of attendance.
