UA Scholars Program

Scholar Information

How much does college cost?

Where do you want to go to college?  How much will it cost? Getting an early handle on these questions will help you figure out how much you'll need to save, earn or borrow to achieve your college goals.

The table gives you an idea of how much it costs to attend one year at a four-year college. In addition, you'll also have to budget for books, miscellaneous expenses and travel.   Attending UA is a great value when you consider that 1) you are paying resident tuition, 2) you would receive the UA Scholars Award and 3) you do not have to travel as far!

Tuition and fees listed below are 1-year averages. Out-of-state rates are based on non-resident prices.
