Undergraduate Tuition and Aid

We craft each one of our financial aid offers to meet your family's specific needs and circumstances.

Throughout your years at LVC, we will be personally available to you to answer your questions and address changes in your life. Scholarships are a big part of the equation, along with manageable loans and work-study options.

For undergraduates, tuition, fees, and room and board for 2020–2021 add up to a total stated cost of $58,530 for resident students and $45,910 for commuters. However, 83% of our undergraduates pay less than this—often, they pay much less. In fact, for the 2020 incoming freshman class, the average total expense was $23,275 for students who filed the FAFSA and demonstrated financial need (includes resident and commuter students). Ninety-nine percent of the incoming class, not just those demonstrating financial need, received LVC grants and scholarships.

Tuition and Fees | Academic Year 2020-2021
 
 
Basic tuition   $44,740
Basic Fees   $1,290
Room and Meals (traditional room and standard meal plan)   $12,500
Total tuition, fees, room, and board   $58,530

*includes scholarships, grants and subsidized federal student loans

*Some or all instruction for all or part of an Academic Year may be delivered remotely or in hybrid format. Tuition and the comprehensive fee have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely or in hybrid format for any part of an Academic Year.

*The value of a Lebanon Valley College education and degree, whether in-person or remote, continues to exceed tuition. Moreover, our main educational costs are continuing, as the services they provide are continuing; our infrastructure costs are continuing; and we are incurring additional costs for online education and actions we are taking to respond to the pandemic. As such, Lebanon Valley College does not refund tuition and comprehensive fee because of changes to the method of delivery of instruction.

*Student housing, meal plans, and dining options may have to be modified before and/or during the semester to address health and safety concerns and/or to comply with risk mitigation strategies.  Students accept full financial responsibility for housing and meal plan charges, regardless of any such changes. In the event that the College is unable to provide housing or meals during a portion of the semester due to the effects of COVID-19 or other circumstances beyond the College’s reasonable control, the College will determine the amount of any housing or meal plan charges to be refunded.

Students and families who are in financial distress due to the coronavirus pandemic are encouraged to reach out for help. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at finaid@lvc.edu for more information.
