Tennessee Independent Colleges and Universities Association

Private Colleges Serving Tennessee


Private Non-Profit College
Average Tuition and Fee Charges, 2011 - 12


The average tuition and fees at a TICUA member 4-year institution is nearly $4,000 less than the average in the Southern US and nearly $8,000 less than the national average.

This fact, coupled with strong institutional aid policies, means that Tennessee's non-profit independent colleges and universities are an affordable higher education option.
