Birmingham Southern College Tuition LOWERED

We are excited to announce today that BSC is resetting the published price of tuition and fees for the 2018-19 academic year. While most other colleges and universities will be raising their tuition yet again, we are instead reverting ours back to what it was more than 15 years ago: $17,650.


In doing so, BSC takes the lead among the nation’s prestigious private colleges and universities to respond to the national conversation about college affordability. Too many prospective students and their families never find out about the high quality experiences, personal attention and mentoring, and successful outcomes they’ll get from a BSC education because they believe they can’t afford it. They see a too-high published price that gives them sticker shock and then assume the doors are closed rather than learning how BSC helps make their valuable educational investment affordable.


So BSC is boldly removing this perceived barrier. Our published price for tuition and fees will decrease by more than 50 percent. Our charges for room and board will remain the same as this year. And our total published price for tuition, fees, room, and board will now fall below $30,000 for one of the best private college educational experiences in the South--before any financial aid is applied to lower your net cost even further.


Along with our new price of tuition, BSC is adding eight new majors and distinctions including Creative and Applied Computing, Architectural Studies, Public Health Studies, and soon-to-launch dual degree programs in law and nursing. We also recently renovated our first-year residence halls and updated our dining services to a more locally-sourced, sustainable, and fresh food provider on campus.

Visit to learn more about this reset and how it will bring a personalized, transformative education within reach for all students. With so much that’s new at BSC, we can’t wait for you to visit campus and experience firsthand all of the exciting things happening on the Hilltop! Consider visiting us either online via our virtual tour or in real life by scheduling a visit on our website.

Forward, Ever!
