Welcome

At Sweet Briar, we invest in YOU. We’ve done so for more than 100 years.

Now, we are completely resetting tuition to provide cost transparency and predictability for families of all income levels.

Beginning in fall 2018, the cost of tuition, fees, room and board at Sweet Briar College will be $34,000. That’s $21,000 for tuition and fees, and $13,000 for room and board. This marks a 32 percent reduction from the published price for 2017-2018.

Financial aid will continue for need-based students, and more than 200 scholarships remain available for eligible students.

At Sweet Briar, we understand that a family’s financial situation doesn’t fit into neat categories. That’s why we work with you and your family one-on-one, providing thoughtful advice and personal assistance as you move through the financial aid process. The Net Price Calculator will be updated with the 2018-2019 tuition soon.

Sweet Briar has consistently been ranked by Forbes magazine as a “top-value” college. Most of our students receive some form of financial assistance, and we are committed to making Sweet Briar affordable for as many students as possible.

Our tuition reset is another big step in that direction.

You can complete your FAFSA as soon as Oct. 1. We will review your aid information and get detailed financial aid awards to admitted and returning students starting in mid-November.

Sweet Briar offers comprehensive financial aid services that include individualized assistance, scholarships, institutional, state and federal grants, and a range of student loan options.

We hope our new tuition plan will make it much easier to figure out how much you’ll pay, and how much financial aid you’re eligible for. But you may still have questions. We’re happy to help! Please contact the Office of Financial Aid:
