Because talent and promise recognize no social, cultural, economic or geographical boundaries, we are committed to making a Vanderbilt education accessible and affordable to all admitted U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens. We understand that providing for a college experience is one of the largest single investments a family will make, and we believe strongly that a Vanderbilt education is well worth the investment. Opportunity Vanderbilt reflects our belief that a Vanderbilt education should be accessible to all qualified students regardless of their economic circumstances. The Office of Student Financial Aid and Undergraduate Scholarships individually reviews every application for financial aid and works closely with each family to help make a Vanderbilt education affordable.
We make three important commitments to U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens which reflect our continuing dedication to making a Vanderbilt education possible:
|Books and Supplies||$1,370|
|Activities/Rec Center Fee||$1,092|
|First-Year Experience Fee||$718|
|New Student Transcript Fee||$30|
|Engineering Lab Fee*||$650|
|First-year Engineering Laptop Allowance*||$1,500|
Modest annual increases can be expected. Students should also allow for travel expenses and health insurance (if purchased through Vanderbilt).
*The Engineering Laptop Allowance and Laboratory Fee apply to engineering students only. First-year engineering students are required to either purchase a laptop from Vanderbilt or provide their own computer that meets published requirements.
