Advantages for Undergraduates

Annual tuition and expenses are within reach for many undergraduate students. For instance, undergraduates who live in the state of Maryland take advantage of highly affordable annual tuition and fees of just $9,200 for 2018-2019. Typical room and board plans are about $9,400.

About 74% of undergraduates receive some form of financial assistance each year.

Frostburg assists undergraduate students with college expenses through scholarships, grants, loans and campus employment, depending on individual financial need, GPA, and test scores.

Entering students are automatically screened for merit and need-based scholarships, so applying early for admission is recommended for priority scholarship consideration.
