According to Rocky Mountain College, here is the 2019-2020 Cost of Attendance:
Full-time tuition costs $14,481 per semester, meaning the 2019-2020 academic year will cost $28,962. Fees cost $295 a semester, totaling $590. Room and board depends on which dormitory that the student lives in as well as the meal plan they choose, but it’s $4,140 for room and $4,312 for board this academic year for a Widenhouse double room and Carte Blanche Meal Plan. Total direct costs end up being $19,002 each semester, totaling $38,004
for the 2019-2020 academic year. However, this doesn’t include other expenses like textbooks and other costs of living.
With all of this being said, Rocky does have a scholarship program and offers work study as well.
A multitude of students receive some sort of financial aid from the College, making tuition easier to afford.
