Financial Aid at the University of Sioux Falls
To address the rising cost of college tuition, the University of Sioux Falls reset its undergraduate tuition price in 2018 by $10,000. This move places USF among the most affordable institutions in the region. And it helps make USF’s high-quality, intensely personal, Christ-centered educational experience accessible to more students of diverse socioeconomic backgrounds.
