Can I afford it? The answer is yes. And, we’re worth every penny.

How are we worth it?

With a 96 percent employment and graduate school placement of the Class of 2015, you’ll graduate with the tools and knowledge necessary to find the job you want or advance your education.

You’re not alone if you are concerned about the cost of higher education. Families at all income levels aren't always sure how they will finance a private college education, but we can help. Even before you apply, you and your family can ask our advice about college financing options or you can use our Net Price Calculator to get an estimate.

A total of 99 percent of new undergraduate students at Springfield College are eligible for financial assistance. You heard that right. On average, our financial aid package is $27,000, which accounts for scholarships, grants, and loans (this average package is based on a combined family income of $105,500 or less). After applying the package to the average cost—based on tuition, fees, and standard room and board—is $23,000, and there are many ways we can help you finance this. (Your aid package may be more or less than this amount.)

So, when you hear that Springfield College or other similar private colleges cost $50,000 or $60,000, it is not true. For 15-consecutive years, the cost of tuition at Springfield College has remained well below average compared to similar private colleges, and, for six-consecutive years, our tuition has remained lower than reported College Board national averages.

Again, an average person can expect to pay around $23,000. And, add in the fact that students at private colleges are much more likely to graduate in four years than students at public universities, the savings are even more substantial.
