Each year thousands of students pursue their dream of a college degree by taking advantage of the financial assistance programs available through Lewis University. Your dreams do not have to be deferred. Our combination of affordable tuition and generous grants and scholarships make Lewis an affordable and outstanding value in higher education today.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, college graduates on average earn $30,000 more annually than high school graduates. The gap grows even wider for those who pursue a masters or doctoral degree. Whether you consider lifetime earnings, job satisfaction, or the ability to adapt to a changing economy earning a college degree continues to be the best investment you can make in your future.
In addition to the financial assistance available, Lewis also offers customized payment plans to help you and your family better manage tuition payments. You can work directly with our business office staff to customize a plan to meet your needs.
You might be weighing the cost difference between a private and state institution. Despite the “sticker price” difference between public and private universities, factors such as time to degree can have a significant impact on your overall cost of attendance. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 64 percent of bachelor’s degree recipients at private colleges completed their studies in four years, while only 30 percent did so at state institutions. The addition of a fifth or sixth year of educational expenses at a state school can result in an overall higher educational cost than a private school. The additional time to degree at a state institution also delays entry into the job market or the start of a graduate program.
