Tuition, Fees, and Financial Aid

Information About Tuition and Fees at Valpo

Our goal is to be upfront about the costs associated with attending Valparaiso University. We believe everyone should have access to quality education and so we do everything in our power to provide affordable tuition rates, undergraduate scholarships, and financial aid resources through our Office of Financial Aid.

Applying for Scholarships and Financial Aid

To maximize your scholarship and financial aid opportunities, do two things:

Apply for admission as soon as possible, as most scholarships are dependent on academic details included in your application.

Complete the FAFSA as soon as possible once the application opens in December. The FAFSA determines your eligibility for different kinds of need-based financial aid.

Valpo Means Value

U.S. News & World Report ranks Valpo as one of the best national universities and among the best for undergraduate teaching. Couple that with our affordable tuition and scholarship and financial aid resources and we earn another U.S. News distinction—one of the best values nationwide.
