What it costs
of Carthage students receive scholarships and grants
Families are not alone in paying for a Carthage education. Carthage views financing as a partnership involving parents, students, and assistance from a variety of supporting resources, including Carthage, the federal government, and some state governments. Carthage works with families on an individual basis to identify the proper mix of available resources. Examining these options is the first step toward developing a financing plan to make Carthage affordable.
Please call the Carthage Office of Admissions at 800-351-4058, or send an email to your Admissions Representative at any time with questions you may have.
Carthage is a private institution, so tuition is the same for in-state and out-of-state students.
