TUITION AND FEES
At Vaughn College, we understand that college may be one of the largest investments you make in your lifetime―and for good reason. Investing in your education now can pay off big in your future. Vaughn cares about providing a quality education that is affordable for students from all walks of life. We offer a number of financial aid opportunities for students and families who may be eligible.
It’s important to know that with institutional scholarships, federal, state, and outside (private) scholarships, you’ll likely pay less than the total costs listed below to earn your degree. About 80% of our undergraduate students apply for financial aid and about 90% receive money they don’t need to pay back.

*Participation in a meal plan is mandatory for all students living in the residence hall. All residential freshmen must choose either the $1,800 or $1,400 meal plan.
- You must pay for the meal plan, in full, by the first day of class.
- Meal plans will not be activated until there is financial clearance from student accounts. Failure to pay your bill in full―and consequently being unable to use your meal plan ―is not justification for a refund of your meal plan charges.
- Fall semester balance can be used during the January intersession.
- Residential students who fail to sign up for a plan will automatically be assigned to the $1,400 meal plan.
- Meal plans are nonrefundable.
- Fall semester unused balance can be carried over to the spring semester, provided you purchase the same plan as the fall semester or one of a higher value for the spring.
- Spring semester unused balance will not carry over to the summer/fall semesters. All unused balances are forfeited as of the date of spring residence hall closing.
- Meal plans begin on the Saturday prior to the first day of undergraduate classes.
- Meal plans cannot be shared or transferred. Cards will be confiscated if used by someone else. We are not responsible for lost cards.
- Meal plan is for the entire academic year. If you don’t change your option by the last day of the fall semester, you get the same meal plan you signed up for in fall for spring.
- All meal plans are based on a declining dollar system and are deducted from your account as you use them.
