Private Education at a Public College Cost
At Spalding University, you can earn your degree in a way that’s both affordable and attainable. Not only are we one of the most affordable private colleges in the state of Kentucky, but we also award more than $4 million in scholarships, grants, federal loans and other types of financial aid each year, significantly reducing the out-of-pocket cost for our students.
99 percent of our first-time, full-time students, receive financial assistance (IPEDs College Navigator). Our undergraduate and graduate tuition and fees are cost-competitive and we offer low online tuition. Whether you are looking to earn your degree on campus or online, you won’t have to sacrifice quality for cost. We offer value and affordability. Our small, diverse and inclusive community cultivates a supportive space for you to gain invaluable career preparation and receive the kind of attention you deserve.
Enjoy the value of a private education while paying a rate similar to—or even less than—that of a public university. Invest in more than an education. Invest in yourself and your future.
Why Is the FAFSA Important?
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) helps determine your eligibility for federal aid, such as low-cost loans, grants, and work-study opportunities. We also use it to determine your eligibility for institutional aid, need-based scholarships, state scholarships and grants. It’s important that you file your FAFSA early as many grants and scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you would like a financial aid package, you can file your FAFSA for the 2024-25 school year beginning in late December. Make sure to file using Spalding’s school code is 001960.
