Anchored Tuition Pledge
The Anchored Tuition Pledge, is our assurance to hold full-time tuition in place,
at one rate with each incoming class. By “anchoring tuition,” our students pay the
same tuition rate for the duration of their education at Hope. The tuition rate they
start with is the tuition rate they end with.
By creating tuition rate stability, Hope College addresses affordability and accessibility so our families can plan their personal budgets with confidence from their student’s first semester to the last.
In 2022-23, here is how the Anchored Tuition Pledge will work for:
Incoming full-time students (first time at Hope) — The tuition rate will be $37,990. This tuition rate will remain the same for a student’s time at Hope.
Returning full-time students — The tuition rate will be $36,300, the same as last year. This tuition rate will remain the same for a student’s time at Hope.
(*Eligibility for aid is reassessed on a year-to-year basis. Need-based financial aid awards can fluctuate.)
(**Room rates are based on double-occupancy, standard residence hall housing, and board rates are based upon a 15-meal plan. Both rates can vary depending on a student’s housing and meal plan choices.)Anchored Tuition Pledge

Paying your Bill
Hope’s Business Services office handles your bill for any Hope-related expenses.
- Billing Statements
Business Services sends monthly billing notices to your Hope email account. Your statement includes charges and financial aid that has been credited to your account.
Your financial aid will be credited to your account as long as you have completed all necessary requirements. We will notify you of additional documents that may be needed to complete your award.
- Payment Plans
Business Services offers a monthly payment plan. In addition to financial aid, Hope accepts cash, check, credit card and eletronic funds transfer as payment.
Thinking About living off campus?
Living off campus or commuting could reduce your need-based financial aid. If you change your housing arrangements during the year, your aid will be adjusted.
