Tuition and Fees

A student at a library table looks at a laptop with a "I AM A MEMPHIAN" sticker on the back.

The cost for tuition and fees at Rhodes is among the lowest of the national liberal arts colleges (U.S. News & World Report). Still, we understand that financing a college education is a big task and we are here to help. We carefully consider every student's circumstances and do our best to help make it possible for every accepted student to attend.
