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 the financial aid we award as scholarships and grants to bring down your cost even further.
But if you want the best college value, you have to look beyond cost alone. It also takes a personally relevant education and successful outcomes to ensure a great return on your educational investment. That's the Utica College advantage.
