Costs and Financial Aid
The Geisel School makes it a priority to keep tuition as low as possible and financial aid high, a trend that has existed here for years.
For the 2013-2014 academic year, tuition is $53,436. Room and board are budgeted for $10,750. The Geisel School provides institutional need-based financial aid in the form of loans and scholarships for those students with documented financial need. In an average year, more than 84 percent of Geisel students receive some type of financial aid, and approximately 54 percent receive scholarship aid. Financial aid awards may include a "base loan" and, if financial need exists beyond the base loan, institutional scholarship funds. During 2013-2014, the base loan is $35,500.
