Affordable Tuition

Affordable tuition has been a guiding principle at Johnson University for more than 125 years, and today Johnson’s annual cost is less than half the national average for private colleges and universities. In addition, need and merit-based scholarships, a work-study program, and other financial aid options are all available to help every student receive an affordable education.

While we’re proud of our work to keep tuition as low as possible, we’re even prouder of the high-quality education we offer, the talented faculty who lead our programs, and the relationships students build with each other and with professors during their time on campus. Our tuition and room and board can compete with a state school, but we also offer a faith-based experience in a close-knit community.
