Affordability

The Sewanee Pledge

The Sewanee Pledge is about it all: cost, value, academics, and culture. The University of the South has taken a leadership role in making a first-rate higher education more accessible. Top-notch faculty have committed themselves to making the first-year experience more meaningful. And for more than 100 years, Sewanee’s Honor Code has given students the chance to live in a community of civility and respect.

Financial Aid

In addition to the four-year tuition guarantee, Sewanee offers high quality financial aid.

  • Percentage of full-time undergraduate students in the College that receive financial aid: 79.9 percent
  • Percentage of class of 2019 receiving financial aid (grants and scholarships, work-study, and need-based loans): 85 percent
  • Average financial aid package (grants and scholarships, work-study, and need-based loans): $25,311

Value

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; they all cost one price. It’s the same thing when it comes to eating on campus. We only have one meal plan; that one meal plan covers all your meals at McClurg Dining Hall—as many as you want.

Career counseling
Skills assessments, internship and career counseling, resume and cover letting support, and networking events are included in the cost of attendance. Get started getting a job your freshman year. 

Laundry
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.

Fitness
All students have unlimited access to fitness facilities at the Fowler Athletics Center. When your mind needs a break, work out everything else.

Outdoor activities
Most Sewanee Outing Program trips on the Domain are available to all students at no additional cost. Hike, bike, cave, and rock climb until you 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 $100 per year. 

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