Similar to many other private liberal arts colleges, the total cost of attendance (tuition, room, board, etc.) can feel scary and out of reach, but financial aid can and will make it accessible to you. For a handful of students, given institutional funding through grants that we are able to provide, attending Pitzer can be more affordable than in-state tuition would be at universities near your home.
