The financial aid office estimates that cost of attendance for an incoming, typical resident, commuter or student who lives at home to attend Hood College for the 2018-2019 year as follows:


Student living

Student living
with relatives


Student living
off campus**

Personal expenses and miscellaneous fees $1,584 $1,584 $1,584

*Room and board charges are billed by Hood College only for students living on campus. Room and board costs for students living with relatives and students living off campus are provided as an estimate for families to calculate college expenses.

**This category is for independent students or dependent students who do not live on campus or with a relative.

For a variety of reasons, the actual cost for any given student might differ from these standard budgets. Most notable are students who live in an off-campus apartment (without their parents) and independent student cannot receive more than the cost of attendance from any combination of institutional, federal, state or private funding source. This includes merit- and need-based aid as well as tuition benefits, ROTC awards and RA contracts.

The comprehensive fee covers student engagement, academic records processing and technology or communications access.

If the amount you and your family must pay is more than you think your family can afford – do not panic! The process used to evaluate your eligibility for need-based aid is based on ordinary situations. Since individual circumstances vary, please talk to the financial aid staff about your situation.
