This isn't idle bragging on our part. We belong to an invitation-only exclusive group of the best universities in the country. It's called the Association of American Universities, and membership is based on the high quality of a university's teaching and research.

What that means for you is this: renowned professors and researchers, a reputation for challenging students to achieve, outstanding academics, and innovative support and enrichment programs. It means the degree you earn here is respected by employers worldwide.

Our priority is making this an investment you can afford. Over the years, we've kept our tuition low — far lower than most of the other prestigious AAU universities. To help you budget, we've frozen tuition for incoming freshmen for four years. You'll never see an increase during the four years it takes to earn a bachelor’s degree. We also award millions annually in renewable freshman scholarships.

Together we’re investing in your future.
