Alice Lloyd College

ALC’s Tuition Guarantee

Appalachian Leaders College Scholarship

IMG_8908
According to U.S. News and World Report, the average cost of tuition for private institutions in the United States is $28,946. However, at Alice Lloyd College the out-of-pocket cost of tuition is $0 for students originating from our service area.

Alice Lloyd College is committed to providing a quality education to mountain students regardless of their financial situation. Alice Lloyd is one of a select number of schools in the country that offers programs specifically designed to help students cut down on debt. In fact, Alice Lloyd is consistently listed among the nation’s leaders in graduating students with the least amount of average debt. Having been founded as “a college for Appalachia,” every qualified student from ALC’s 108-county service area is awarded the Appalachian Leaders College Scholarship, which covers the cost of tuition for up to 10 semesters.

The amount of the scholarship is based upon each individual student’s financial need and varies accordingly. Any additional financial aid, such as scholarships from outside sources, is also factored into the overall award amount given to each student. Ultimately, when all of these resources are pooled together, the cost of tuition is paid in full.

However, getting your education at Alice Lloyd is not free. The College must rely on various sources to meet financial obligations, and students contribute through work performance. Alice Lloyd College is one of only seven work colleges in the nation. The Student Work Program enhances the educational experience and promotes service to the campus community while enabling students to help “pay their own way.” Various student aid grants such as Pell, KTG, KEES, etc., which students apply for through their FAFSAs, are applied directly to student accounts. Numerous privately-funded and designated endowed scholarships are also applied directly toward the cost of education; and the Alice Lloyd College grant, which is derived from a nationwide donor base, guarantees that the remaining balance is covered.

Our Financial Aid Office is also sometimes able to assist students with the cost of room, board, and other fees as it applies to each student’s level of need.

Room, Board, and Other Fees

The cost of education (tuition) is guaranteed for all students from within the College’s service area due to the generosity of donors from across the nation; however, students are expected to pay for their living expenses (Room and Board) and the student matriculation fee. When compared to other state colleges and universities, the cost of room and board at Alice Lloyd is relatively low. The amount owed by the student will depend upon his or her financial aid package. If a student’s tuition is covered by other federal and state grants/scholarships, then the remaining balance can be applied toward these additional costs.  

The Resident Student’s Responsibility (per semester):

Cost of Boarding

                Room                  $1,495

                Board                  $1,625

Matriculation Fee                  $975

TOTAL (Resident)                $4,095 (per semester)

The Commuter Student’s Responsibility (per semester):

Matriculation Fee                 $975

Commuter Fee                     $1,075

TOTAL (Commuter)              $2,050 (per semester)

It is the student’s responsibility to contact the Financial Aid Office to find out what he or she will owe.

Books and Other Expenses

Depending on the student’s course of study, books will range from $500 to $700 per semester. However, students may be able to save money by purchasing used books from our campus bookstore.

The student may also incur other expenses that may vary. A few examples of special fees:

Lab Fee – $25 (per semester)
Vehicle Registration/Parking Fee – $60 (per year)
Part-Time Student Fee – $212 (per semester hour)

Other costs, such as supplies, amenities, and personal expenses, will depend upon the needs of each student. The price of transportation to and from campus is also the student’s responsibility.
