The Average True Cost

Here’s how the numbers actually break down for an average student:

Total: $59,970 (Tuition & Fees, Housing & Meals)
Randolph-Macon Dean’s Scholarship: minus $27,000
Randolph-Macon Need-Based Grant: minus $7,600
Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant (for Va. residents): minus $5,000

= $20,170

This example includes RMC’s average merit scholarship, which is determined based on a students application, and need-based grant total, which is determined from the FAFSA. Many students additional aid from the federal government, which is also linked to completion of the FAFSA, as well as Federal Work Study opportunities on campus.

Calculate a personalized estimate

Our Net Price Calculator is designed to give you an indication of the amount and types of financial aid for which you might qualify. As you use this tool, know there are many factors that go into assessing the estimated price, and each school assesses financial aid eligibility differently.

The calculator assesses the financial situation of your family using the information you provide. It will then estimate the amount of grants, scholarships, and other financial aid that’s likely to be available to you. Your ‘net price’ is the difference between the Cost of Attendance and the estimated amount of grants and scholarships.
