Hi folks! As a junior in high school, I'm exploring my college options and Vanderbilt University is one of them. Does anyone know about the costs involved, such as tuition, housing, and other expenses, for both in-state and out-of-state students?

Hello! Vanderbilt University is a private institution, so the tuition and fees are the same for both in-state and out-of-state students. For the 2024-2025 academic year, the estimated cost of attendance for Vanderbilt University, including tuition, housing, meals, books, and other personal expenses, is approximately $95,572.

Here's a breakdown of the costs:

- Tuition & fees: $67,498

- Housing: $14,124

- Meals: $7,910

- Books: $1,194 (estimate)

- Personal expenses: $3,346 (estimate)

- Transportation: $1,500

Keep in mind that these costs are subject to change each academic year, and the numbers provided are estimates. For the most up-to-date information, it's a good idea to visit Vanderbilt's financial aid website or contact the financial aid office.

Vanderbilt is known for its generous financial aid packages. The university is need-blind in its admission process, which means that your ability to pay does not affect your chances of being admitted. Vanderbilt also meets 100% of demonstrated need for all admitted students, meaning that the university will provide financial aid to cover the total cost of education minus your expected family contribution (calculated from your FAFSA or CSS profile). This financial aid may consist of a combination of scholarships, grants, work-study, and loans.

Make sure to complete the FAFSA and CSS profile to be considered for financial aid at Vanderbilt. It's worthwhile to use the Net Price Calculator on Vanderbilt's website to get an estimate of the financial aid package you may receive.
