La Salle University Resets Tuition to $28,800 - A 29% Reduction
College must become more affordable for all. And we’ve taken a bold step to make it happen. Through An Affordable Path For All, La Salle University is taking a leadership role in addressing the escalating cost of a college education by resetting our undergraduate tuition from $40,400 to $28,800—a 29% reduction and back to what students paid in 2008!
Our tuition reset—effective Fall 2017—will also encourage students to apply who previously thought the price of a La Salle degree was beyond their reach. That means our transformational education is more accessible to students from a wider range of socioeconomic backgrounds, supporting our Lasallian values of inclusion.
Since 1863, La Salle University has committed significant resources to helping students and their families afford a college education. In 2015-16 over 97% of our students received generous financial aid and scholarships. For the 2016-17 academic year, we froze tuition at the prior year’s level, one of the few universities nationally to do so. An Affordable Path for All is our latest initiative to make tuition affordable for students so they can start and remain in college, completing their degrees and moving on to successful careers.
Support of all kinds, for scholars of all kinds.
We understand that for many, financial aid can make or break their decision on where to go to college. True to our Lasallian values, we’re dedicated to supporting students and families who aren’t able to pay full tuition.
The Office of Financial Aid is available to work with you to finance your education through scholarships, grants, loans, and work study programs. Our financial aid counselors are always here to help you navigate the process.
