Spring Hill College Tuition Reduction Details
On September 14, 2020, we announced a new era at Spring Hill: we are reducing our tuition in order to make our Jesuit, Catholic education and all its value more accessible and affordable to more students than ever before.
- Our new tuition price will be reduced by approximately 50%, from $41,868 in 2020 to $21,100 in the Fall of 2021.
- Standard room and board rates have been reduced by nearly $3,200.
- This price reduction moves Spring Hill College from having the highest direct costs in Alabama to among the most affordable private colleges in the country.
- This lowered price takes the uncertainty out of our College costs and affordability concerns for families. It allows students and families to focus on what a degree from Spring Hill can mean to them and the robust new programs, growth and professional opportunities open to them at our College.
- Our tuition change also means we are providing more price transparency for new and continuing students and their families. By stating our direct costs, students will know that what they’re paying more closely reflects the real costs at Spring Hill prior to the awarding of merit and need-based aid.
The Spring Hill College Value
- Lowering our costs does not mean lessening the distinction of a Spring Hill degree. In fact, everyone here on The Hill has been working hard to enrich the Spring Hill College education and experience for our students.
- We added new, practical majors as well as plans for new and improved facilities.
- We launched the Center for Online Learning
- We’ve been awarded a number of national and state accolades including for Nursing and Education
- We’ve been ranked as one of the Top 10 colleges for return on investment by Forbes Magazine and have been designated a College of Distinction.
- Our graduates continue on their paths to success after college. In 2019, 99.5% of our students either placed professionally, entered graduate school or opted for a nonprofit or service opportunity.
- We’ve also been awarded a number of exceptional local and national grants from agencies and foundations:
- National Endowment of the Humanities grant will immerse K-12 educators in the history of the slave ship, Clotilda, and the Africatown community.
