College of Undergraduate Studies


Holding the Line on Affordability

Immaculata University is making your pursuit of a private undergraduate degree more affordable.

  • Tuition for fall 2017 was reduced 25% for all College of Undergraduate Studies students. This means that instead of the proposed rate of $35,400, tuition is only $26,500!
  • In addition, Immaculata chose not to increase tuition for the 2018-19 academic year. We are holding the line on affordability, keeping the cost of your degree low.


Improving Accessibility and Achieving Balance

Private undergraduate higher education has been operating on a high-tuition, high-discount model for decades. Immaculata is balancing our model so that the price you see is much closer to the actual cost of attendance, and still allows us to reward students for their academic achievements.

Immaculata University was founded by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) with the primary mission of educating the underserved. Holding true to our IHM roots, reducing our tuition will allow more students to benefit from an Immaculata education by increasing accessibility.

According to PayScale, IU ranks #21 in PA for best return on investment. Check out the listing; as you will see, there is more than price at stake when choosing your college.


Frequently Asked Questions

How does this affect me?

For many students, the lower cost of attendance will help close the financial gap and allow them to pursue a quality IU education. Low-need students, who typically pay a higher percentage of costs out-of-pocket, will have less tuition to cover. For high-need students, federal and state aid will cover a larger percentage of the now significantly lower sticker price.

We also know that at IU students have reported cost as one of the biggest challenges to degree completion, so reduced tuition may further improve our already higher than average retention rate.

We're resetting our tuition back to what it was in 2009!


Will the cost be the same for all four years of college?

Immaculata reduced tuition in 2017 and kept it the same for 2018. We may make modest increases to the cost of tuition during your four years at the University in order to cover the costs of providing a quality education. However, any future increases will be added to a lower base rate, saving you as much as $37,409 off the sticker price over the course of four years.


Will you still offer scholarships and financial aid? 

Yes! We offer several scholarships to recognize a variety of students for their academic achievement, diverse backgrounds, community service, and extracurricular activities. We also facilitate need-based aid to help qualifying students finance their education.


Will the cost for room and board change?

Immaculata University reduced room and board costs by 10% last year (2016-2017 academic year) in an effort to kick-start the savings plan for our students. The reduced tuition may also allow some students the financial flexibility to consider on-campus housing. 


Do I still need to complete my FAFSA?

Continue to complete and file your FAFSA per the published deadlines and requirements. This is a critical component to making sure we secure the best financial package according to your needs.


What effect will this have on the value of my degree?

An IU degree has proven to be and will continue to provide a superior return on your investment. Ten years after enrolling at IU, our alumni report a median salary of $51,800, well above the national median of $34,100. Now, with the lower tuition, you will borrow less and save more, allowing you to see your direct ROI sooner.
