Value

You can afford UE! Let us show you how.

You’ve probably heard it all… we provide a high-quality education, access to the best faculty around, and an incredible student experience through internships, study abroad, and other activities.

While those facts all ring true, that high quality education comes at a cost.

Paying for college is one of the main concerns when it comes to finding the right institution. At the University of Evansville, we work closely with families to make sure that a UE education is affordable.

You can also save on educational costs and living expenses by choosing a major that offers a three-year degree plan.

Breakdown of students by income pie chart for 2023
Students from all Income Levels attend UE. Here is a breakdown of students by income level. Adjusted gross income for first-time, full-time, freshmen FAFSA filers for fall 2021. 14 percent are $200,000 and up. 13 percent are $150,00 to $199,999. 12 percent are $120,000 to $149,999. 16 percent are $90,000 to $199,999. 17 percent are $60,000 to $89,999. 15 percent are $30,000 to $59,999 and 13 percent are under $30,000.

That still seems pretty expensive.

The sticker price is certainly a big number. Let us show you how we help make UE affordable for you!

What will the actual cost be? It depends.

The actual cost is different for each family. If you take the sticker price and subtract all of the financial aid such as scholarships, need-based aid, grants, and work-study opportunities, the actual cost may be much lower than you think!

But won’t I still graduate with more loans than I would somewhere else? Not necessarily.

You might be surprised to see that at UE you may graduate with a similar debt as you would at a US public university.

A UE degree pays off in the long run.

Many years after graduating and pursuing careers, our alumni continue to experience the value of their education. The median 40-year net present value of a degree from UE is higher than those from other UE private and public institutions.
