Tuition and Fees

Admissions icon

Minerva is committed to providing an extraordinary education to the brightest students in the world, at an affordable cost. At $10,000, our annual tuition is well under half that of other highly selective universities. By lowering the financial barriers, we both minimize your debt burden and increase global access, thereby helping broaden the diversity of the student body.

Your housing, student services and other expenses are competitive with other public and private American universities. Technology support is included in the student services fee, but you are required to supply your own MacBook Pro laptop to optimize your experience on the Active Learning Forum platform. Student discounts are available for laptops and most books and supplies through the Claremont Consortium bookstore.

Though world travel is an important aspect of the full residential experience, the extent of individual travel plans and costs at the time of travel are outside of our control. Like other universities, the cost of travel between residence hall locations, or to and from home, is your responsibility.

Our goal is to make a Minerva education accessible, regardless of your personal circumstances.
