Stevenson: A Best Value in College Education

U.S. News & World Report has designated Stevenson a “Best Value School” four years in a row—and for good reason.

The published cost of a Stevenson education (tuition, fees, room, and board) is $53,218, but with our generous financial aid packages, including merit scholarships and need-based aid, our price is competitive with most large public universities.

99% of our students receive scholarships and/or financial aid.

Affordability isn’t our only advantage. Our mentoring and personalized attention, supportive campus community, career focus, and exceptional experiences in and out of the classroom are all part of the “Best Value” that we bring to your education.

Our average annual cost after financial aid*

$26,541

makes us competitive with most large public universities.

*Cost is based on average financial aid package for first year students for 2021-22
(Includes institutional, federal, and state scholarships and grants)
