Tuition and Fees

No college understands the need for affordability better than Utica College – which is why we boldly took the lead among New York’s private colleges in 2016 to reset our tuition price by lowering it $14,000.

Now Utica College has the best private college price among all of our peer institutions in the Northeast – and that’s before financial aid.

Utica is Affordable

Did you know that more than 95% of Utica College students receive financial aid?

With all that Utica College has to offer - truly awesome faculty, small class sizes, career-driven programs, advanced facilities, and more - you might think it's out of your price range.

The fact is, a quality private education at UC is more affordable than you think. It may even provide to be more affordable than some of the larger public institutions you've been accepted to.
