What does it mean to be the University of the South? The answer to that question changes from one generation to the next and from one individual to the next. Being “of the South” means that we are both the beneficiaries and the critics of a rich tradition. While we are deeply invested in this region, we also engage with other communities, locally and globally. Diversity and variety—of the South and of the world—inform and underpin our institution, and all our community’s citizens must confront this question on some level.

In its educational programs and activities and with regard to employment, the University of the South stands firmly for the principle that its students and employees (faculty and staff) have a right to be free from discrimination and harassment based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, and genetic information and free from sexual misconduct. Moreover, we promote the flourishing of a diverse and inclusive campus community.

Tuition covers as many courses as you can take.
Whether you take the standard curriculum of 16 hours or an over-achiever curriculum of 22 hours per semester, your tuition will remain the same. We do not charge by credit hour.

One flat fee for room and board
We don’t have a tiered cost structure for residence halls. They’re all nice; there is one price. It’s the same thing when it comes to eating on campus. We only have one meal plan, one that will cover all your meals at McClurg Dining Hall—as many as you want.

Career counseling
Skills assessments, internship and career counseling, résumé and cover letter support, and networking events are included in the cost of attendance. Get started on your job search your freshman year if you like.

Use of laundry facilities in residence halls is included in the cost of attendance. No reason to carry change around. No reason to walk around in dirty clothes, either.

All students have unlimited access to fitness facilities at the Fowler Athletics Center. When your mind needs a break, a work out, or maybe just a nice swim.

Outdoor activities
Most Sewanee Outing Program (SOP) trips on the Domain are available to all students at no additional cost. Hike, bike, cave, and rock climb until you just can’t anymore.

Parking is reasonably priced.
You won’t drive your car very often as a Sewanee student. If you want to have one around, though, our parking fee is $105 per year. 

Unlimited printing is available at no additional cost to students at Jesse Ball duPont Library. Print a single page or senior thesis.
