Financial Aid


Affordable Private Education

At Lewis University, we are committed to keeping education affordable for our students. That's why last year, more than 90% of our undergraduate students received financial assistance totaling approximately $57 million dollars.

With one of the lowest private college tuition rates in Illinois, many students receive the benefits of a Lewis education for less than the cost of a State university.

It's all part of our Catholic and Lasallian Mission. To provide values-based education for qualified students, particularly those in serious need. It's why we offer generous grants. Excellent scholarships. Strong student worker programs. Convenient payment plans.

As a university, we are committed to developing a partnership with you in order to help make your college education affordable. In fact, Lewis University is one of the most affordable private universities in the Chicago area. Plus, compared to state universities, where less than 30% of students graduate in 4 years, getting your degree from Lewis may be less expensive than you think.
