We Keep Costs Low
So Our Students Can Soar
Here’s something you don’t see every day: a small, private college lowering tuition and keeping it that way.
But that’s exactly what Belmont Abbey College did in 2013: We reset tuition, reducing it by 33% for all students. To this day, the cost of tuition at the Abbey remains $18,500 a year. We did this for a very simple reason: When tuition is affordable, families need to borrow less money, and students have the freedom to pursue their dreams without a heavy price tag weighing on their minds.
The results of our tuition reset have been amazing.
Increased enrollment means that more students are taking advantage of the tuition reset, while also knowing that the Abbey offers aid to more than 90 percent of our student body. An increase in revenues following the tuition reset allowed us to create the Honors College, which provides an exceptional exploration of the Great Books and modern life. All of this was done while maintaining small class sizes that foster strong faculty-student relationships.
Most importantly, the tuition reset has ensured that those who want an outstanding education and a foundation for personal and professional success based on the Benedictine tradition can have it at Belmont Abbey College.

We believe that as you plan for your future, you shouldn’t have to worry about tuition increases from one year to the next. The Abbey’s Four-Year Tuition Guarantee offers peace of mind so you can focus on building a foundation that will last a lifetime.
The Four-Year Tuition Guarantee is simple: Your tuition will not increase over the next four years. We offer this plan to current and new undergraduate students, transfer students, international students, and online learners.
Here are some other great reasons to be excited
about the Four-Year Tuition Guarantee:
- If you need to take a semester off, the offer resumes when you return
- If you officially withdraw from some or all of your courses during a semester, you can retain your original tuition if you re-enroll the next semester
- The Four-Year Tuition Guarantee does not change the terms and conditions of scholarships or financial aid, so you are still able to take advantage of those.

The Sky’s the Limit
My time at the Abbey has been one for the books. The relationships with my coaches, with staff and with my fellow students are some I will always appreciate and never forget. You aren’t just a number at the Abbey, you’re important and that has to be the best part.
